Wake Tech Dean Named Associate Vice President

Dr. Gayle Greene

January 22nd, 2010





RALEIGH, N.C. (January 22, 2010) - Dr. Gayle Greene, Dean at Wake Technical Community College since 2002, has been named Associate Vice President of the Northern Wake Campus. Wake Tech President Dr. Stephen Scott is pleased to announce Greene's promotion, noting her capable leadership throughout the construction, opening, and non-stop growth of the new campus.

Greene has served as Dean of the award-winning Northern Wake Campus since it opened in August 2007. The campus is the first in the nation to have all facilities LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified by the U.S. Green Building Council. Under Greene's leadership, enrollment at Northern Wake has grown from approximately 2,300 students in the fall of 2007 to more than 6,100 last semester. Classroom seats for fall 2009 totaled 11,461, exceeding capacity for scheduled classes. Greene plans to address the issue through her "Afternoon College" initiative, which will accommodate up to 1,000 additional students next fall by adding classes during off-peak hours.

In her new role as Associate Vice President, Greene will continue to lead students, faculty, and staff at the Northern Wake Campus. She will also assist with the planning and design of future buildings; project future staffing and equipment needs; and manage enrollment by optimizing the use of classrooms and facilities to ensure the greatest benefit for the community.

"It is a great privilege to care for this beautiful campus and lead the dedicated, innovative faculty and staff who work here," Greene says. "I am grateful for the opportunity to witness the rapid growth of the Northern Wake Campus because it means we are serving more students and utilizing our facility responsibly."

Greene joined Wake Tech in 2002 as Dean of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences. Before coming to Wake Tech, Dr. Greene was Vice President of Student Life at Louisburg College in Louisburg, NC. She holds a Doctor of Education from NC State University, a Master of Divinity from Southeastern Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, and Bachelor of Arts from Mercer University in Macon, GA.
