Diane Bergmanson, the Retired Director of the Access & Technology Center and Students with Disabilities Program at Hunter College, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Executives for dedication, achievements, and leadership in academia.
Coming from the corporate world, Mrs. Bergmanson started her career in academia as an outsider. Her experiences at companies like U.S. Building Management and Xerox Corp. ended up being what allowed her to thrive in her new environment, however. She was able to teach her students at Hunter College about the real world from the perspective of someone who’s been there, with emphasis on things kids don’t always about learn in school, like eye contact and the handshake. During her time at the school, Mrs. Bergmanson served as the director of both the Access & Technology Center and the Students with Disabilities Program. She was also involved with educational improvement. Although she has since retired, she remains an exam proctor of the Princeton Testing Center.
To prepare for her endeavors, Mrs. Bergmanson earned a Bachelor of Business Arts and a Master of Business Arts from Bernard M. Baruch College in 1968 and 1977, respectively, and a Master of Arts in counseling from New York University in 1995. She also became a certified notary public and an ordained minister in the state of New York. In her free time, Mrs. Bergmanson enjoyed finding ways to expand her professional network. She was the president and district director of the Business & Professional Women’s Club Association, an astrologer in Woodstock, New York, and a member of the Jung Institute and the National Council for Geographic Research.
