Dr. Jerry Migler was named Campus Dean for Dakota College at Bottineau.

Migler currently serves as vice-president of academic affairs for the Colorado Community College System.  The CCCS, based in Denver, is Colorado’s largest higher education system and oversees career and academic programs in the 13 state community colleges as well as career and technical programs in more than 160 school districts and six other post-secondary institutions.

Migler previously served as provost and executive vice chancellor at Pima Community College in Tucson, AZ.  Prior to that, Dr. Migler served in administrative roles at Minnesota State Technical and Community College in Moorhead, MN and at the North Dakota State College of Science in Wahpeton. He is a Rugby, ND native with strong ties to north-central North Dakota.

“We are excited to appoint someone with the depth and breadth of experiences like Dr. Migler has to the role of campus dean at Dakota College at Bottineau,” said Minot State University president, Dr. Steve Shirley. “His impressive background, dedication to student success, commitment to community college and career and technical education missions, and his love of North Dakota, all combine to make Jerry a superb fit for this role.”

“I am extremely honored to be the new campus dean at Dakota College at Bottineau,” said Migler.  “Having been both a student and former faculty member at DCB, the college is a very special place to me.  I look forward to working with everyone at the college and in the community and region to continue the strong tradition of student success that exists at DCB.”

Migler earned his doctorate in education from the University of Minnesota. He earned a master of science in agricultural education and a bachelor of science in agriculture, both from North Dakota State University.  Migler also attended Dakota College at Bottineau before transferring to NDSU.

Migler will take over as campus dean on September 8, 2015. He will succeed Dr. Ken Grosz, who recently announced his retirement after a successful 40-year career at DCB.

Migler and his wife, Jacalyn Jelleberg Migler, have two grown children, Jessica and Jakob.
