Marc Bridgens

When Marc came to Penn College in 1990, he already had 23 years of experience in the HVAC industry. Marc was introduced to the field in 1967, when he began working in his father's HVAC business. He graduated from Lock Haven State College in 1977 with a bachelor's degree in Biology/General Science, and taught HVAC at Tioga County AVTS from 1978 to 1982. Prior to beginning his career at Penn College, Marc was employed as a plant engineer at Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hospital in Wellsboro, PA.

In 1990, Marc accepted a faculty position in the HVAC/Plumbing Department at Penn College, and quickly distinguished himself as an outstanding educator. He was granted the rank of assistant professor in 1994. Marc was the 1995 recipient of Pennsylvania College of Technology's Distinguished Teaching Award. In 1997, he achieved the rank of associate professor and was selected as the department head for the HVAC program areas. He became interim assistant dean for the School of Construction and Design Technologies in 1999, and accepted the position on a permanent basis in 2001.

In 2002, Marc conducted a workshop at the ACCA National Conference on "The Connection Between Education and Industry." The following year, he started the ACCA Student Chapter at Penn College, which was the first of its kind in the nation. Marc earned a master's degree in Education at Wilkes University in 2005.

During the 2008-2009 academic year, Marc assumed the position of interim dean for the School of Construction and Design Technologies, and accepted the position on a permanent basis in April 2009.

Whether in the classroom or working as an administrator, Marc's primary goal is to help students realize their potential and to succeed. Marc is an avid hunter and golfer and is actively involved in mission work.
