College of the Canyons administrator Ryan Theule has agreed to continue on as dean at the college’s Canyon Country campus, the school announced Thursday.

Theule, a Canyon Country resident, has served as the interim dean of the campus since April 2012, when founding Dean Dena Maloney resigned. He removed that interim tag Thursday.

In a news release, Theule said he was “excited” to continue helming the second campus of Santa Clarita’s only community college.

“The fact that 77 percent of the 2013 graduating class have taken at least one class at Canyon Country demonstrates both the need for, and reach of, this campus as part of the college’s commitment to provide students with increased access to education,” Theule said in the news release.

Theule is no stranger to the Santa Clarita Valley, having graduated from Canyon High School in 1998 before going on to attend Stanford University. He later graduated with a bachelor’s and master’s degree in history in 2002.

Theule earned a doctoral degree in educational leadership from the University of Southern California in 2012.

After graduating from Stanford, Theule worked as an administrator at Trinity Law School before returning to the Santa Clarita Valley to take a position at COC in the admissions and records office.
COC Chancellor Dianne Van Hook called Theule an “energetic and visionary leader.”

“His passion, and innovative and entrepreneurial spirit, will lead to new partnerships and new opportunities that will benefit our students and the surrounding community,” said Van Hook in a news release.
