Veteran educator Maggie Killoran has joined Cayuga Community College as associate vice president and dean of the Fulton campus. In that post, she oversees the year-round operations of the 1,000-student campus, located just west of the city of Fulton at 806 West Broadway.
Killoran's eighteen years of career experience in community college and adult education include teaching, administration, admissions and student services. She served for the past six years as director of enrollment management for Isothermal Community College in Spindale, N.C. A native of Canada, Killoran holds an MBA in educational administration from Royal Roads University and a master of arts in psychology from Wilfrid Laurier University. She has a bachelor's degree in education from the University of Western Ontario and in psychology from the University of Windsor. Currently, Killoran is pursuing a post-master's certificate in enrollment management through Capella University. She has presented at conferences including the League for Innovation in the Community College, the Student Development Conference of the Carolinas, and the National Workplace Literacy Conference in Canada, and has conducted workshops in public, corporate and nonprofit settings.
Cayuga's Fulton campus serves as a gateway to higher education for Oswego County and surrounding areas, and offers workforce development programs for employers in the region. Killoran's appointment follows a nationwide search during 2008; she replaces Jeffrey Hoffman, executive director of the Cayuga Community College Foundation, who has been serving as interim administrator of the campus.
