Allysen Todd has worked at the Community College of Allegheny County for thirty-one years. She began as an adjunct at several off-campus sites and centers. Then, as a full-time professor in the English Department, she was elected as department head and chair of the College’s governing body, College Council. After seventeen years teaching, Dr. Todd became Dean of Arts and Sciences at CCAC’s largest campus, Allegheny, on the North Shore of Pittsburgh.

As chief academic officer of the Allegheny campus, as well as coordinating dean for thirteen disciplines and programs college-wide, Dr. Todd also oversees the academic schedule, payroll, library and tutoring services, placement testing, while supervising approximately 104 full-time faculty and 150 adjuncts. She is a member of the Achieving the Dream team and has helped lead initiatives in developmental education, workforce collaboration, articulation agreements, and retention strategies. Dr. Todd earned a baccalaureate degree in English from Bethany College, a master’s degree in English from Duquesne University, and a doctorate in administrative policies and studies in higher education from the University of Pittsburgh. She resides in South Park with her husband of twenty years, Rick Croyle.
