Meet Dunwoody’s Dean of Students Kelli Sattler

Hello students, parents and Dunwoody friends:

As someone relatively new to the College, let me start by saying how pleased I am to be your Dean of Students. I thought it might be helpful to share a little about myself and my areas of focus at Dunwoody and beyond.

My hometown is in Northern Michigan. I attended undergrad at Aquinas College and obtained my graduate degree in Higher Postsecondary Education from Syracuse University. I have over 10 years of experience in Student Affairs; 8 of which were spent at Chapman University in Southern California.

I came to Dunwoody because I genuinely enjoy connecting with and advocating for students. Some of the ways I achieve that are through the programs and services listed below. I am here to make a difference and to take Dunwoody to the next level in terms of a well-rounded student experience.

Another important part of my role is to step back and think big picture about what our College is doing to support and empower students to be at their best. In doing so, I collaborate with faculty, academic support, student services, and colleagues across campus. I also listen to students and lead the way in implementing their vision for the future.

When I am not at work, I enjoy the outdoors, i.e. camping, hiking, and (hopefully more often now that I’m in MN) skiing. I also love spending time with my dogs and spoiling them every chance I get.

I look forward to getting to know you and seeing Dunwoody continue to grow.

MEET DUNWOODY’S Associate DEAN OF STUDENTS John richardson

Hello Dunwoody Community:

I am excited to be your Associate Dean of Students and to be a part of Dunwoody College of Technology’s rich history. Here is a quick overview of my education and experience.

I received my undergraduate degree in psychology from Western Washington University and my Masters in Counseling Psychology from the University of Denver. I have over ten years of experience in Student Affairs and have focused my leadership on creating healthy, safe, and inclusive campus communities. Most recently, I served as the Director of Student Services at The Art Institute of Colorado.

I chose Dunwoody because I wanted to be a part of its history and to develop its future. We are growing our student experience by building on Dunwoody’s career focused culture. A positive, challenging, and inclusive student experience is the essence of a memorable college education. I look forward to being a part of your collegiate journey.

When I am not on campus, you can find me hanging out with my family and introducing my kids to the great outdoors. I also enjoy snowboarding, fly fishing, running, and cycling. I look forward to exploring Minnesota and the Twin Cities as we just moved here from Denver. If you have any must see places, tasty restaurants, or great fishing spots (I’ll keep it a secret!), stop by my office in the Pinska Center.
