Dr. Kevin Drumm's Biography
Dr. Kevin Drumm became the seventh president of Broome Community College in February 2010. He is most recently credited with bringing the construction of a 21-million dollar Science Center to fruition (groundbreaking is set for spring 2012). The facility is the first new classroom construction in 15 years, and will be the new home for biology, chemistry and physical science departments.
Dr. Drumm counts the modernization and upgrading of BCC’s infrastructure as one of his proudest achievements. In addition, he has made outreach both in local high schools and in the community a campus-wide priority. This effort has resulted in BCC having a greater presence in the area, with art and ceramic classes now located in Carriage House at the Roberson Museum and a number of other sites currently under development. The momentum of high school outreach will continue through the Pipeline Initiative which links K-12 with BCC, Binghamton University and local industry.

The District added more than 150,000 square feet of new facilities, and raised more than $100 million in public and private funding.
Prior to becoming president of NWCCD, Dr. Drumm was Vice President for Enrollment/Student & Public Affairs at Springfield Technical Community College in Springfield, MA.
Dr. Drumm’s career also includes working in a variety of student services and academic affairs positions at community colleges, universities, and private colleges, ranging from Student Life Director and Assistant Academic Dean to Vice President for Student Affairs at a New Hampshire community college.
