The Board of Trustees has named Mark James as the college’s new chancellor, effective July 1, 2010. James was selected by the Trustees based on his commitment to innovation, financial expertise, experience with state/federal government appropriations process and his ability to lead large complex organizations.
James will immediately begin serving as executive vice chancellor/chancellor designee and will work closely with the chancellor to ensure a smooth transition. Snyder will continue to lead MCC until June 30, 2010, when she will then step down as chancellor.
Recognizing the current financial challenges facing MCC and that everyone is expected to do more with less, Snyder and James have made the decision to consolidate the duties of three vice chancellor positions into two positions.
Effective July 1, 2010, Vice Chancellor Tuesday Stanley will assume responsibility for administrative services and retain student services. Vice Chancellor Paul Long will assume responsibility for information technology and the Institute for Workforce Innovation in addition to his current responsibilities of educational services.
