Bouchey ’98 Named Dean of ITT Tech Campus
Bettyjo Howland Bouchey ’98 has been named dean of the Latham, N.Y., ITT Technical Institute campus.
The 420-student school prepares students for entry-level technical jobs. ITT Tech, based in Indianapolis, has 78 campuses across the country. It offers programs in design and drafting, information technology, and electronics technology.
“A critical part of my role as dean is to connect the business community with our current and graduating students,” says Bouchey.
“ITT is perfectly positioned to train and graduate highly skilled entry-level workers. The momentum that this region is feeling due to the efforts of RPI, UAlbany, and Union College will soon bring many large companies to the area that will need to find workers who can hit the ground running with current skill sets. I can’t wait!”
Prior to being named dean, Bouchey worked at VersaTrans Solutions Inc., which makes transportation software for school districts.
Bouchey helped found and lead the Albany-area chapter of the Alliance of Technology and Women, established in 2003. She has received several honors, including a Woman of Excellence Award from the Albany Chamber of Commerce, and was named one of the Capital District Business Review’s 2005 “40 Under Forty” award winners in February.
Bouchey received an MBA from Rensselaer in 1998.T.L.
