Clyde Named Business Administration Dean

By Rob Goldberg Jr.
PCC Media Relations Director

Katherine ClydeWINTERVILLE—Pitt Community College administrators announced last week that instructor Katherine Clyde has been promoted to serve as dean of the college’s Business Division.

Clyde began serving in her new role Sept. 2, taking over for Karen Mozingo, who filled the position on an interim basis after former Dean Donnie Lee retired earlier this year.

PCC Vice President of Academic Affairs Thomas Gould says that based on Clyde’s previous four years with Pitt, the PCC campus can expect good things from its newest dean.

“Katherine previously served as coordinator of the college’s business administration program and is a former president of the PCC Faculty Senate,” Gould said. “We know she will bring to the dean position the same spirit of collaboration and sense of professionalism we have come to admire in her work.”

As dean, Clyde will direct and supervise all activities within the Business Division, which is comprised of four programs of study. She’ll work to align those programs with industry needs and promote partnerships between PCC and secondary/post-secondary schools, local business and industry, and area municipalities.

“The business division has committed and resourceful faculty that are invested in Pitt Community College and care about the students,” Clyde said. “It will be important that we focus on student success and completion and explore various partnership opportunities that benefit our students.”

A Greenville native, Clyde earned a bachelor’s degree in business management in 2002 from N.C. State University, where she also minored in Spanish. She earned a Master of Business Administration degree from East Carolina University (ECU) in 2008.

The 34-year-old Clyde began working at PCC as a business administration instructor in 2010. She served as the program’s curriculum coordinator the past two years.

Clyde’s involvement with the PCC Faculty Senate began three years ago. She served as a representative with the group before becoming vice president a year later and ultimately president during the 2013-14 academic year.

Prior to joining Pitt, Clyde worked at ECU’s Center for Economic Education, which was part of the Bureau of Business Research in the university’s College of Business. Her responsibilities included financial literacy workshops, grant writing, project management and student advising.

Away from campus, Clyde says she enjoys traveling and spending time with her family.
