Dr. Dayne Hutchinson Promoted to Dean of Students
Dr. Dayne Hutchinson has been promoted to Dean of Students. In this new role, he will be pivotal in enhancing MMC’s support of student success.
Since joining the College in 2018 as Director of Student Development and Activities, Dayne has served with creativity, innovation, and distinction.
Over the last four years Dayne has transformed the student experience in various ways, including establishing scholarship opportunities through the Emerging Leaders and Leadership Scholars programs, expanding leadership development with the Leadership Immersion Weekend, and bringing the student engagement platform MMC Engage online, which created opportunities for students, faculty, and staff to collaborate, interact, and strengthen the co-curricular experience.
Dayne has also strengthened MMC’s celebration of cultural heritage months and oversaw the successful launch of the MMC Speaker Series, which introduced students to prominent speakers such as Nikki Giovanni, Dolores Huerta, MJ Rodriquez, and Jeremy Pope, among others. In addition, Dayne was instrumental in creating the Intercultural Center, from redesigning the space and creating the calendar of events to ensuring that the space opened last fall.
In his new role as Dean of Students, Dayne will serve on the senior leadership team for the Division of Student Success and Engagement and continue to directly supervise the Office of Student Development and Activities. He will also continue to provide operational oversight, direction, and mentorship to the Intercultural Center, and will take on the same leadership role for the Office of Residence Life.
Congratulations, Dayne, on your new position!
