Batavia, NY- Amy Churchfield can remove the word “Interim” from her job title. Since last August, Churchfield has been overseeing the Dansville Campus Center of Genesee Community College as Interim associate dean. Now she has the job permanently. Churchfield, of Groveland, is thrilled. “I am looking forward to all we can do moving forward,” she said.
A native of Pavilion, Churchfield earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Speech and Hearing Education from Elmira College and a Master’s Degree in Higher Education Student Affairs from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. She began her career as director of Student Activities at Medaille College in Buffalo where she worked from 2001- 2004.
Churchfield joined GCC’s Dansville Campus Center in 2004 as a technical assistant, advising students in course and career planning, arranging seminars and conferences and helping manage the course schedule. She also taught the First Year Experience course and Health Careers Planning. In 2010 she was promoted to technical specialist and then became interim associate dean in August 2013. College administrators made her appointment permanent in May 2014.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the Dansville community and participating in community-wide events,” Churchfield said. “I enjoy getting to know our students from their initial meeting all the way through to their graduation. I also enjoy seeing those students who had to stop attending classes for a while and then seeing them when they come back to finish their degree.”
As associate dean, Churchfield oversees the operations and management of the Campus Center; supervises credit and non-credit program offerings, hires and evaluates Center staff, and speaks to agencies and community groups about the programs and services the Dansville Campus Center offers.
Outside of work, Churchfield loves spending time with her family, which includes her husband, Courtney and their sons, Tyler and Trevor. She’s a lifelong Bills fan and loves football season. She also enjoys making cards and scrapbooking.
