Anoka-Ramsey Community College is excited to announce Steve Crittenden as the interim vice president of academic and student affairs.
The appointment is being made following the temporary departure of Deidra Peaslee in July for a year-long interim position as President of Saint Paul College.

“I am extremely grateful and excited for the opportunity to serve our students, staff, and faculty in this new role,” said Crittenden. “As educators, we are blessed with the responsibility to positively impact student’s lives every day. It is this philosophy that helps guide me every day. Throughout my professional career I have been fortunate to serve as a professional staff member, coach, instructor, and administrator in both academic and student affairs. My hope is to be able draw upon all these experiences to work collaboratively with our faculty and staff to give our students the best possible educational experience in and out of the classroom.”
Crittenden held multiple positions at Vermillion Community College and was the dean of student development and campus dean at Northland Community & Technical College. Crittenden also served on the Minnesota College Athletic Conference Executive Committee including terms as the vice president and president. He currently serves on the Board of Regents for the National Junior College Athletic Association.
