Lynn Vosler has been named workforce development director at Front Range Community College.
FRCC President Andy Dorsey said Vosler will be responsible for growing and building FRCC’s non-credit workforce training arm, with particular attention to expanding innovative programs like Energy Boost, which Vosler started in 2008. Energy Boost is a 92-hour program that prepares workers for entry-level jobs in the energy industry.
Vosler also will be responsible for responding to the needs of business and industry for classes for credit. In this role, she will serve as the liaison between the college and companies and county workforce boards in FRCC’s service area, which encompasses parts of Adams, Jefferson, and Weld counties and all of Boulder, Broomfield, and Larimer counties.
“Lynn has shown the creativity, collaboration, and responsiveness to industry that this new position requires,” Dorsey said.
Vosler has been director of the Institute for Community and Professional Development (ICPD) at FRCC’s Larimer Campus since 2007. Her new position was created in the wake of the retirement of Vosler’s colleague who oversaw the ICPD at FRCC’s Westminster Campus.
“This was an opportunity to better integrate our workforce programs throughout our service area,” said Dorsey.
Vosler joined FRCC from Western Nebraska Community College, where for seven years she was director of business and individual training.
Her private industry experience includes being a product manager for Unicover Corporation, where she developed marketing plans and executed direct marketing campaigns, and being director of marketing for Taco John’s, where she directed the marketing for more than 300 franchises in 28 states. Both companies are headquartered in Cheyenne, Wyo.
She has a bachelor’s degree in journalism/public relations from the University of Wyoming and is a member of the American Society of Training and Development.
FRCC is a member of the Colorado Community College System, the state’s largest system of higher education serving more than 151,000 students annually. CCCS oversees career and academic programs in the 13 state community colleges and career and technical programs in more than 160 school districts and seven other post-secondary institutions.
