The College of Southern Maryland announced the selection of Daniel Mosser with 25 years experience in public and private sector workforce development as vice president of its Corporate and Community Training Institute. Mosser has developed and implemented successful strategic learning solutions for hundreds of businesses to address performance, organizational development and talent management challenges.
“Business and elected leaders, democrats and republicans, conservatives and liberals alike are all singing the praises of community colleges and their role in expanding economic opportunity by preparing the future workforce,” said Mosser. “I cannot recall a more opportune time for workforce development in the community collegesfrom basic entry-level job training to skilled worker training to two-year associate degree programs. I look forward to leading CSM's Corporate and Community Training efforts at a time that I believe will be an historic opportunity for community colleges. I look forward to working closely with local business, community and elected leaders to secure a slice of the economic pie for the residents of Southern Maryland.”
Most recently vice president of workforce development and continuing education at Prince Georges Community College, Mosser provided leadership and directed the work of more than 80 administrators and staff, and 850 adjunct instructors in programs serving more than 24,000 non-credit students each year. Previously he worked as vice president of education and workforce development and national education director for Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc., a 22,000-member national construction trade association in Rosslyn, Va.
“We are fortunate to have such a seasoned professional join the college, said CSM President Dr. Brad Gottfried. He understands workforce development and the importance of maintaining positive community relations. He will certainly 'hit the ground running'.”
