Staff Profile

Alan Dickinson

Associate Director of Physical Services and Transportation

What do like most about working at Saint Michael's College?

I guess it's the creativity the position offers - that's more on the landscaping side with the trees and shrubs.

What do you like about Saint Michael's College students?

Sometimes I have positive encounters with students who will walk by and say thank you for the work we're doing as far as improving the grounds or cleaning up. I've even had them walk by and apologize for a mess, or say thank you for our clean-up work, which gives meaning to the experience.

How would you summarize your Saint Michael's College experience in one sentence?

I've been here 28 years, and it's just been a journey - hopefully a journey that continues for a few more years.

What's your favorite campus location and why?

I think I really like the area around the Observatory, Pomerleau Alumni Center and the president's house across Route 15 from the main campus. Except for the airplanes taking off, it seems a little quieter and a little more like a forest environment, so that really is my favorite spot.
