Anna Berry

Greenfield Community College
Chief Student Affairs Officer & Dean of Students
I am the Chief Student Affairs Officer and Dean of Students at Greenfield Community College in rural Western MA.  I use she, her, hers pronouns.  I have oversight of all of our enrollment services, student supports, and student engagement departments and programs.  I have been at GCC for 14 years and started here as the Coordinator of Disability Services.  I am the product of public education including my early education in a Head Start program in the infancy of the program in New York City.  I would never have attended college if it weren't for the community college option.  I have lived experience similar to that of many of our students and consider this work to be work of the heart.  I live in Southern Vermont with my family.  In addition to my passion for my work, I am an avid gardener and use my gardens as the the ultimate stress reliever.
