Camden County College welcomes Dr. Sarah Iepson as the Dean of Liberal Arts and Professional Studies.
Dr. Iepson began her career as a Professor of Art History at Community College of Philadelphia (CCP) in 2002. She also served as Art Department Chairperson at CCP and the Honors Program Curriculum Coordinator. From 2008 to 2021, she served as CCP’s Associate Regional Coordinator for the State of Pennsylvania for the Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society. Dr. Iepson is also a recipient of a Lindback Foundation Teaching Excellence award.
After spending over two decades as a Professor, Dr. Iepson explained that she was looking for a change.
“I had been tinkering with the idea of moving from the ranks of faculty to a Dean position, but I knew that it had to be the perfect place at the perfect time,” said Dr. Iepson. “When I saw the position open up here, I thought that this might be it.”
While she is new to the CCC community, Dr. Iepson expressed that she already feels right at home.
“I love the College’s personality, the dedication of its faculty, staff, and students, and the opportunities to do amazing things with the College family and local community,” she said. “I felt that it was a great fit for me, and so far, it is.”
For Dr. Iepson, working for a community college is much more than a job.
“Community college means so many things to me because it means so many things to the folks that we serve,” she explained. “It means opportunity, diversity, success, equity, growth, experience, collaboration, and family. It means that there is a place for everyone to set out their goals and achieve them. I have spent my entire professional career in the halls of a community college, and I don’t ever plan to leave!”
Dr. Iepson is looking forward to the start of the fall semester to experience the bustle of campus, meet students and faculty alike, and partake in the many activities on the College calendar. When she’s not at work, Dr. Iepson can be found on a run, hiking, or camping with her husband and dog. She is also an avid photographer and competes on a dragon boat racing team!
Welcome, Dr. Iepson!
