David C. Gnage, interim dean at Arizona International College of the University of Arizona, has been named campus executive officer of Penn State Mont Alto, effective Jan. 14. The position came open when David Goldenberg announced his departure in March. William Curley has been serving as interim dean, and will continue in that role until Gnage arrives.

Before assuming positions at Arizona International College, Gnage served as dean for business affairs at Broward Community College in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., from 1989 to 1995. He was responsible for all fiscal and administrative support functions on a campus of 9,000 students, and oversaw $30 million in construction projects. In addition, he developed the campus strategic planning process and the capital improvement master plan for the five-campus district. From 1982 to 1989, Gnage served as registrar and director of enrollment management for the college.

He began his higher education career at the Genesee Community College in Batavia, N.Y., as associate professor of mathematics from 1968 to 1974. From 1974 to 1982 he served as director of academic services and registrar, and received the State University of New York Chancellor's Award for Outstanding Administrative Services.

Gnage received his bachelor's degree in education and master's degree in mathematics from the State University College at Brockport, N.Y. He received his MBA from the State University of New York and his doctorate from Florida Atlantic University in public administration.
