PITTSBURGH—Justin A. Tatar, of Monongahela, PA, has been named assistant dean at CCAC–Washington County Center. He has served in the role on an interim basis since June.
His efforts at the center have included expanding student and public space through the conversion of an underused classroom into a combined computer lab, study area and work station for adjunct professors. He assisted in streamlining class schedules to create more convenient scheduling options for students. He also helped to connect student and faculty tutors with Homework and More, a Washington County tutoring and outreach effort for underserved students in grades K-8.
Tatar joined the college in 2009 as director of Admissions at CCAC–South Campus in West Mifflin and participated in the second cohort of the college’s Leadership Development Institute. Prior to joining CCAC, he worked in admissions and recruiting at Westmoreland County Community College.
Tatar earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Marketing and a Master of Science in Business Administration, both from California University of Pennsylvania. He is currently enrolled in the Administration and Leadership Studies doctoral program at Indiana University of Pennsylvania.
