Dean’s Blog

Amardeep KahlonIn May, I joined Unity College to lead the TIEP. What drew me to Unity College was the focus on access, equity, student success, career pathways, focus on a high-quality curriculum, and visionary leadership. My own expertise lies in building rigorous, well-designed competency-based programs, workforce alignments, and robust student success models. Currently, I serve on the Board of Directors of the Competency-Based Education Network, an organization that advocates for, and influences policy related to, competency-based education.

Having worked at community colleges for over two decades — both as a faculty member and an administrator — I understand the need to align student learning with employer requirements. Further, I am keenly aware of the constraints and needs of the adult student population. Diversity and Inclusion are more than buzzwords to me. In my past role, I worked hard to increase the number of women in the computer science program and succeeded. 

I look forward to welcoming you to the TIEP and helping you get to the next step in, or start, your professional journey!
