B’Ann Dittmar, Instructor of Business Management at Clarke University, will give the Mackin-Mailander Faculty Lecture on March 21 in Jansen Music Hall on the campus of Clarke University. The free lecture is set for 7:30 p.m. and is open to the public.
Dittmar’s lecture is titled “Dream Job, Part II.” She will share with the audience her career path from a bank teller to a bank president to a college professor at Clarke University.
“My story is about declaring what I wanted to do in life early on but taking about 20 years to actually do it! When I was a senior in high school, I declared to a good friend that I wanted to be a college professor one day,” stated Dittmar.
Dittmar had a 19-year career in banking and prior to leaving the industry, was the President of the Dubuque and Galena U.S. Bank markets.
She goes on to say, “Prior to becoming the president of the bank, I had an opportunity to serve in a bank trainer role, and I also taught college classes as an adjunct during that time. It was then that I discovered my love of teaching and my passion for it.”
The event is part of the Mackin-Mailander lecture series and the year’s lecture theme of Discovering Yourself.
