As Dean of Campus Living, Zack is responsible for the oversight of the Office of Campus Living, comprised of Housing, Residence Life, and Community Standards. Zack often engages with students around their experiences on campus in times of celebration, crisis, and everywhere in between. Zack often tries to connect students with different resources on campus to improve their overall experience.

Zack began his Student Affairs career as a Resident Director and Area Coordinator at Saint Anselm College for three and a half years before serving three and a half years as the Associate Director of Student Life at Daniel Webster College. Zack served as the Director of Community Standards at Mount Ida College prior to his appointment to Dean of Campus Living.

Zack works with the other staff in Campus Living to uphold the Community Standards to create an environment conducive to student success.

Zack served as President for the Residence Life Association of the Granite State for two terms, 2010-2011 and 2012-2013. He facilitated two leadership retreats for the Student Government Association at Colby-Sawyer College in 2014 and 2016. Zack published an article in the September 2012NEACUHO Newsletter titled Helping Hands: Developing Leadership Opportunities outlining creative staff restructuring to increase student leadership opportunity and office efficiency.

I enjoy engaging with students to learn about their story, where they come from and where they plan to go and to create the best experience possible for our students.
