Nancy P. Crimmin is a respected academic leader with thirty years of experience in higher education. She is a passionate advocate for Becker students and is deeply committed to preparing them for the uncertainty of a rapidly changing world with curriculum dedicated to the principles of the Agile Mindset.
Dr. Crimmin began her journey at Becker College as the vice president for student affairs in 2012, and was promoted to senior vice president, chief academic and student affairs officer four years later. Since arriving at Becker, she has spearheaded the development of new graduate programs, overseen the integration of career education and advising, and engineered the reorganization of Becker academics to better align educational interests and collaboration between programs. This reorganization was devised with a particular focus on enhancing the student experience, creating student leadership opportunities, and assembling a team dedicated to student development and best practices in student affairs.
Student success has always been at the heart of what motivates Dr. Crimmin, who began her career in the registrar’s office at Curry College in Milton, Massachusetts. As her career progressed, Dr. Crimmin worked in academic advising and admissions at Alverno College in Milwaukee, Wisconsin before heading to Assumption College in Worcester, Massachusetts as a resident director. After ten years in Residential Life and Conduct, she was promoted to dean of Campus Life at Assumption, a role she served until her 2012 move to Becker. Dr. Crimmin is the biggest supporter of Becker students in all their collegial endeavors and is a fixture at Becker sporting events and campus activities.
She is involved in a number of professional organizations, having served a three-year term on the National Foundation Board for the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators (NASPA). She recently chaired the 99th annual NASPA conference in San Antonio, Texas in March, 2017. She served as the Region I Vice President for NASPA (2008-2010) and on various regional board positions over the past 15 years. In the past, Dr. Crimmin taught as an adjunct faculty member at Springfield College in the student personnel Master’s program.
Often recognized by her peers, Dr. Crimmin received the Mary Tobin Senior Student Affairs Award from the Massachusetts Association for Women in Education in 2005 and, in 2012, received the NASPA Continuous Service Award for Region I. In 2017, Dr. Crimmin was honored with the 2017 NASPA Foundation Pillars of the Profession Award - selected by members of NASPA to honor her lasting contribution to the field and the organization as a student affairs professional.
Dr. Crimmin holds a doctorate of education in educational leadership from Johnson and Wales University School of Education, a master’s of science degree in counseling and student personnel services from Springfield College, and a bachelor’s of arts degree in psychology from Stonehill College.
