Camille Dumont was recently named the Director for the Center for Career and Professional Development (CCPD). Camille has been at Post University in a variety of capacities since 2011.
As a faculty member, Camille developed and taught courses for her alma mater, Iona College, in the health services management graduate program. She joined Post’s School of Arts and Sciences in 2011 and served as an Associate Faculty member, teaching College to Career courses online and on campus. In 2016, she was hired as an associate program chair for College to Career (CTC) and in 2018, she was promoted to Program Chair (CTC). She also served as the Interim Director of the First Year Experience (FYE). Camille is actively involved in many committees on campus.
After earning her bachelor’s degree, Camille’s professional life began in the Sales and Marketing Department at the famed Plaza Hotel in New York City. While deciding that the hospitality industry was not a long-term career goal, the business skills learned during this time were an essential foundation for her future career endeavors. She spent 10 years working in the health services management field, overseeing the operation of large ambulatory medical practices in New York City and Connecticut, and later served as the program chair of the Allied Health Department at Naugatuck Valley Community College.
Camille served as the President of the Connecticut Career Counseling & Development Association (CCCDA) from June 2021 to June 2022 and is currently on the Board as the Immediate Past President. She is also a member of the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) and the National Career Development Association (NCDA). Camille earned a MS with a concentration in Health Services Management and a BBA, both from Iona College.
Camille brings a wealth of experience to the role, and we are excited about the possibility of growing the CCPD to serve not only Main Campus students but the entire online student population as well. With expansive ideas and a lot of energy, Camille will develop impactful programs and services to support all Post students in their career trajectories.
