Welcome to Dunwoody
It is my pleasure to welcome you to Dunwoody College of Technology. You are joining a team of faculty and staff who are committed to high performance with a focus on providing the best possible experience to our students.
Dunwoody’s brand of career-focused, applied education has been a hallmark of the College since its founding back in 1914. It is an approach that requires a love for knowledge that can be used in practical settings and a desire to keep up on industry trends and the best practices of professionalism and communication. I encourage you to think about how you can best uphold that tradition – no matter what your position here on campus.
As you familiarize yourself with the College’s employment policies, practices, benefits and programs found in this handbook, keep in mind that they are intended to create a safe, collegial and professional environment. If you have any questions about anything you read, please talk to your supervisor or Human Resources.
I hope that your experience here will be challenging, enjoyable, and rewarding.
Welcome and good luck!
Rich Wagner, Ph.D.
