Dr. Stanley Preczewski Appointed as VP of Academic & Student Affairs
Georgia Gwinnett College President Daniel J. Kaufman has appointed Dr. Stanley Preczewski as Vice President of Academic & Student Affairs. In his new role, Preczewski will be responsible for the initial development, design, implementation, and assessment of eight bachelors degree programs in the fields of general business, health services, information technology and teacher education, the hiring of department heads and faculty to teach and administer those programs, and the preparation of materials to support the college’s initial accreditation request.
Preczewski’s selection came after a screening committee narrowed down 75 qualified candidates to eight “standouts” who were invited to the GGC campus for interviews. The committee included GGC president Daniel Kaufman, GGC VPs Eddie Beauchamp and Gordon Harrison, Georgia Perimeter College interim president Rob Watts, Gwinnett Tech president Sharon Rigsby and Board of Regents Administrative Associate Felita Williams.
“Stanley brings with him an intense understanding for implementing a clear and concise strategic vision that is embraced by faculty, staff, administration and students alike,” stated Kaufman, “I’m pleased that he’s joined our team and look forward to working with him on a daily basis.”
Preczewski was drawn to the position and the unique opportunity noting that: “Without ties to any existing past practices, GGC is positioned to implement best practices and cutting edge innovations and is destined to become a 21st Century leader in student intellectual and character growth while concurrently meeting the unique needs of the regional community.”
Most recently, Preczewski was Vice Dean for Resources at the United States Military Academy at West Point & Associate Professor of Behavioral Sciences; Colonel, U.S. Army (Active). He holds a Ph.D. in Higher and Adult Education, Educational Psychology and Cognitive Psychology from the University of Missouri, a Masters of Arts degree from the United States Naval War College, a Master of Sciences degree from the University of Massachusetts and a Bachelor of Sciences degree from Cornell University.
