Dr. Kevin Drumm became SUNY Broome Community College’s 7th president in February 2010. Since 2010 the college has added 12 new academic programs including the A.A.1, an advanced 1-year associate’s degree program and 8 new certificates. SUNY Broome has also undertaken $80 million in capital construction and renovations, including the College’s first residence hall, a state-of-the-art Natural Science Center and the renovation of a 120yr old historic Carnegie Library in downtown Binghamton for a Culinary and Events Center. Labor relations have been more positive than at any time in the past 30 years in spite of both shrinking budgets and public subsidy. Also during Dr. Drumm’s tenure SUNY Broome received the largest private gift in SUNY community college history of $11.3 million and the single largest grant at $6 million. The college also recently opened a Student Incubator in partnership with Binghamton University thanks to a SUNY 2020 Grant. The local IDA and Chamber of Commerce, in a first for New York, are now co-located on campus in the region’s first one-stop economic development center.
From 2004-2010 Dr. Drumm had been president of the Northern Wyoming Community College District, creating Wyoming’s 1st multi-college district where he raised over $100 million in public and private support for campus expansions and endowments. Prior to NWCCD, Drumm was VP Enrollment, Student & Public Affairs at Springfield Technical Community College in his home state of Massachusetts. He has held a variety of administrative posts at other community colleges, universities, and private colleges ranging from Student Life Director and Assistant Academic Dean to Vice President of Student Affairs.
He received his A.A. from Berkshire Community College in Pittsfield, Mass; B.S. and M.Ed. degrees from Boston University; and his Ph.D. in Organizational Studies and Higher Education from New York University.
