Associate Dean of Marketing & Outreach

Minnesota State Community and Technical College

Minnesota State Community and Technical College (M State), College-wide, is seeking a full-time Associate Dean of Marketing & Outreach.

M State is a regional, student-focused institution, poised for a strong future. M State is the fifth-largest outstate college in the Minnesota State system and the largest two-year college in Greater Minnesota, serving more than 8,000 students each year. But don’t be fooled by our size. At M State you’ll find the best of both worlds: big-college resources and a small-college feel on our four welcoming campuses and in our many online courses and programs. Our vision is to be a success story for every student. We lead with our values of integrity, inclusion and innovation, and we strive to be ‘All IN’ as we teach and serve our diverse student body.


Minnesota State Community and Technical College specializes in affordable and exceptional education, service, and workforce training. We welcome all students and engage them in shaping their futures and their communities.


A success story for every student.



As dedicated professionals, we act with purpose in everything we do. We are sincere and honest in our relationships and communications and hold ourselves accountable to doing the right thing even when no one is watching.


We welcome, respect and accept people for who they are and celebrate the power of our collective differences in creating and shaping more robust, energized communities.


Through the power of our four campuses, strategic partnerships and creative problem-solving, we enhance communities. We incorporate technology to improve the student experience, and we see continuous improvement as a constant.
