Dean of Studies
Since joining Bennington College in 2002, Laurie Kobik has served in a variety of roles including Admissions Counselor, Academic Advisor, Director of Study Away and Associate Dean of Academic Services. In all of her various roles, Laurie has been committed to working in close partnership with faculty, staff, and students to support all aspects of the student academic experience.
Prior to Bennington, Kobik spent seven years teaching high school students in the North Carolina Public School system. She and her husband both grew up in southern Vermont and always knew they would return to the region–Kobik was thrilled to find employment in her hometown of Bennington and has felt “at home” at Bennington College in more ways than one since landing here. Kobik holds a BS in Education from the University of Vermont.
