Derek Zuckerman has joined the Office of Student Affairs at the College of the Holy Cross as the new associate dean for student life. He succeeds Kristine Cyr Goodwin, who served as associate dean since 2001.
Zuckerman has extensive experience in student affairs and residential life, most recently as the assistant vice provost for residential life at Iona College in N.Y., where he was a member of the college’s strategic planning committee and served as chair of the North East Association of College and University Housing Officers’ financial strategy task force. Prior to Iona, he held positions at Quinnipiac and Bentley universities in student affairs and residential life, and at both institutions he also served as an adjunct professor of marketing and business.
“I am delighted to welcome Derek to the Holy Cross community,” says Jacqueline Peterson, vice president for student affairs and dean of students. “A product of Jesuit education himself, he comes to Holy Cross with a personal understanding of, and appreciation for, the College’s mission, as well as impressive expertise in the field of student affairs. I am confident that his vision and energy will greatly advance student life here at the College.”
Zuckerman earned his B.S. from Le Moyne College, his M.B.A. from Bentley University and his Ph.D. in educational leadership from Fordham University.
