Kim Blosser

2020-21 Aspen New Presidents Fellow
Dr. Blosser is a passionate supporter of the comprehensive community college mission. She was the first in her family to attend college and, like many students, found herself unsure of her major and her future career. As a result, she moved back home and started taking classes at a local community college. There, she found faculty dedicated to helping students succeed and staff who were welcoming and supportive. The community college was where she found her focus, and it was where she learned the skills needed to be successful in higher education.

In Dr. Blosser’s 20-year career in community colleges, she has been an adjunct faculty member and full-time teaching faculty, served as program lead for the information systems technology program, was elected faculty senate chair, served as a dean, served as the chief information officer, became an associate vice president overseeing instructional programs, chaired SACSCOC reaffirmation efforts, and was a chief academic officer.

Statewide, Dr. Blosser serves as a member of the Virginia Advisory Committee on Dual Enrollment and the General Education Transfer Committee, and serves as a member of the Virginia Initiative for Growth and Opportunity (GO Virginia) Region 8 and Region 9 Councils. She is also a board member of the Luray-Page County Chamber of Commerce, a board member of the Shenandoah Valley Technology Council, and is a member of the Winchester Rotary Club.

Dr. Blosser earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration and a master’s degree in education from Eastern Mennonite University. She earned a second master’s degree in management information systems and a doctorate of higher education leadership from Nova Southeastern University.

Outside of her academic career, Dr. Blosser is proud to be the mom of two sons, Will and Luke. She and her husband, Patrick, reside in Page County, Virginia.
