2 May 2012. 0 comments

Dr. Harinder “Hari” Singh has been named dean of academic pathways at Berkeley City College, Dr. Betty Inclan, president, announced.  Singh will supervise BCC’s arts and cultural studies, biotechnology and science, English/ESL, and social sciences departments.  He also will work closely with the college’s dean of workforce development to create new collaborations among BCC’s instructional departments.

“I strongly believe that both the liberal arts and the business framework can complement each other and provide a stronger foundation for students to solve complex real world problems,” Singh said.

He most recently was director of assessment at Seidman College of Business at Grand Valley State University (Grand Rapids, MI), and also served as editor of the Seidman Business Review.  During his academic career, he was chair of the Economics Department at Seidman and was a professor in San Diego State University’s economics department.

His background includes extensive experience with curriculum development, scheduling, grants, research, and supervision of instructional programs.  In his last post as director of assessment at Seidman, he coordinated assessment activities for five programs, with a specific focus on the development of basic skills for students in communication, critical thinking, quantitative skills, and ethical reasoning.

In 2011, Singh was awarded the Niemeyer University Award for outstanding teaching, administration, research, and service.  The prestigious award is given to only two faculty members each year.

Singh received his M.A. in economics from DAV College in India, and a Ph.D. in economics from the University of Illinois at Chicago.
