Pittsburgh, Aug. 3, 2007 — Alexandra Gregory, D.M.A., has joined La Roche College in McCandless Township as dean of the School of the Professions. The Mt. Lebanon resident joined La Roche from Point Park University, where she served as associate vice president for Academic Affairs and dean of Graduate Studies, as well as a professor of music. Ms. Gregory received her Doctor of Musical Arts from the University of Missouri-Kansas City Conservatory of Music and Dance, her Master of Arts from University of Central Missouri and her Bachelor of Music from Southwest Baptist University. She also holds an Executive MBA from Rockhurst University.

She brings to the college a unique perspective to her role as dean. As an accomplished musician and choral conductor, she finds that her musical expertise perfectly complements her extensive experience in higher education.

“I believe my many years as a choral conductor provide me with the ability to unite my passion with my leadership qualities,” Ms. Gregory said. “In the role of dean, I work as a conductor would – seeing the big picture and noticing the little things that make a big difference. I am able to pull people together for a common goal, and I value what everyone brings to the School of the Professions as far as experience and dedication.”

In her most recent role as dean at Point Park, Ms. Gregory worked with all programs, focusing specifically on faculty development, assessment and retention programs, and accreditation programs – having served as the university’s liaison with Middle States Commission on Higher Education and Pennsylvania Department of Education. She also worked closely on development efforts that garnered a major university gift for an executive-in-residence program and initiated the Academic Technology Users Group of faculty to assist staff and faculty with instructional technology and scholarship needs.
