PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Berkshire Community College has hired a new director of Safety and Security and a new building maintenance supervisor II. It has also announced it has a new adjunct faculty fellow and interim dean of Business, Science, Mathematics and Technology.

Ellis Richardson has been hired as the new Director of Safety and Security. Richardson, a retired chief of police for the city of Hudson in New York, brings an extensive law enforcement background with a community-building mindset. He most recently worked as the Public Safety sergeant for Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He attended University at Albany and received an associate's degree from Columbia-Greene Community College.

Dave Moran, who was the director of Facilities at the college, has taken on the role of the building maintenance supervisor II. This position combines the responsibilities of electrician II with other essential maintenance duties, so BCC can continue providing the resources necessary to transform its main campus for the benefit of students, faculty, staff, and visitors. The director of Facilities position is open and seeking qualified candidates.

Audrey Sussman has been selected as BCC's first adjunct faculty fellow. Sussman has been an adjunct instructor of culinary arts at the college for more than 16 years. The adjunct faculty fellow position, which started this spring semester, was created to enrich support for adjunct faculty. In this role, Sussman will assess the needs of adjunct faculty and provide instructional support to adjunct faculty and helping to connect them with campus resources, among other responsibilities.

Finally, Frank Schickor, who was a life sciences faculty member at the college, has accepted the role as interim dean of Business, Science, Mathematics and Technology after the unexpected passing of Charles Kaminski in January, who previously served in that role.
