Frost School Names Dean

August 22nd, 2006 by Adam

Dr. Nancy S. Betchart has been named the Dean of Plymouth State University’s Frost School of Continuing and Professional Studies.

Dr. Betchart is a 25-year veteran collegiate educator and administrator who moves to PSU from Granite State College, where she was Dean of Academic Affairs.

The Frost School of Continuing and Professional Studies at PSU is a new undergraduate division designed for working professionals and nontraditional students seeking to earn a college degree while meeting the demands of work, family and personal life. The Frost School, launching in September, offers degrees in business administration, communication studies and criminal justice, with a combination of evening, weekend, online and blended (a mix of online and face-to-face) coursework. Additional degree programs will be added in the future, based on student and community needs.

Dr. Betchart says the Frost School’s programs will meet the increasing need for an educated work force within the state of New Hampshire.

“I have a passion for education and the opportunity that it provides to people. I am eager to utilize my 25 years of experience in higher education as a faculty member and an academic administrator to help launch this new program. With the opening of the Frost School, the opportunity to access higher education will be greatly increased,” said Dr. Betchart.

“Bringing flexible, alternative access to higher education to working and part-time students is our goal, along with year-round programming,” Betchart said.
