Dr. Dull brings with him a wide range of experience in various sectors of higher education; serving at public, private not for profit, and for-profit institutions. He also spent eight-years in regional accreditation at the Higher Learning Commission (HLC). His expertise is with enrollment operations, accreditation, State authorization, information technology, and strategic enrollment growth.
Chuck is a pioneer in online teaching and learning. He began his career in higher education in 1996 with Bryant and Stratton College, where he became one of the early faculty to teach online. At Myers University (now Chancellor University), Dr. Dull was the Director for the Division of Adult Learning. There, his team was responsible for building and deploying the first online bachelor’s and master’s degree program in Ohio. His team also saved precious marketing dollars through the innovative use of contemporary marketing and enrollment techniques which allowed them to reach target audiences more efficiently through the use of the Internet, Banner and other tools.
Chuck then joined HLC and served as the Operations Manager on the AQIP Team. There, he helped to build a continuous quality improvement model for the reaffirmation of accreditation, focusing on the use of quality principles. While at HLC, Dr. Dull also lead the Information Systems department where he guided the initiative to build a new database, along with several important tools for end users such as the Annual Institutional Data Update (AIDU), Peer Reviewer Data Update System (PRDUS), AQIP Action Project Directory, the HLC Website public information, and the financial review system.
After his time with HLC, Chuck spent two-years as a Campus President for Remington College in Cleveland, Ohio where he inherited a campus that had declining enrollment and revenues as well as rising costs. During his tenure enrollment doubled and cost containment practices were improved, allowing the college to invest in capital improvement projects which resulted in improved educational services and opportunities for the students. The financial position of the College improved dramatically under his leadership, from a school losing thousands of dollars in operating revenue each month to one with a positive and growing bottom line.
Chuck’s passion for online learning and innovation directed him to Cuyahoga Community College, where he now serves as the Assistant Dean for eLearning and Innovation. In this role, Dr. Dull has leveraged his experience with strategic enrollment growth and accreditation to work on program planning, the state authorization process for online programs, and innovative concepts for content delivery.
Chuck was recently named to the Academic Quality Institute (AQI) Program Council. AQI is non-profit organization that is dedicated to helping higher education institutions attain high quality, maximize their effectiveness, and build strong relationships with those they serve by providing quality training in areas of assessment and programs.
Dr. Dull holds a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and a Master of Business Administration from Youngstown State University. He also earned a Doctor of Philosophy in Education from Capella University.
