PUBLIC INVITED TO SUBMIT SURVEY RESPONSES FOR THE
SEARCH FOR TCC’S NEW PRESIDENT
HAMPTON ROADS, Va. (Dec. 13, 2011) – Initial stages of the search process for Tidewater Community College’s new president have begun. As President Deborah M. DiCroce prepares to retire from TCC in March to become CEO of the Hampton Roads Community Foundation, TCC and the Virginia Community College System are launching a nationwide search for her replacement.
To that end, TCC invites the community to provide input to the selection of the next TCC president via a brief web-based survey that can be accessed at the college’s homepage, www.tcc.edu. Responses will become part of the material considered by the Tidewater Community College Board in the search process.
The survey will be available for input for five days, through Friday, Dec. 16.
Tidewater Community College - the largest provider of higher education and workforce development services in Hampton Roads - served more than 46,000 students in 2010-11. The 16th highest associate-degree producer in the nation, TCC offers more than 150 programs including business administration, culinary arts, general studies, modeling and simulation, network security, nursing, and automotive technology. Among the fastest-growing two-year institutions in the United States, TCC was founded in 1968 as a part of the Virginia Community College System. The college serves the South Hampton Roads region with campuses in Chesapeake, Norfolk, Portsmouth and Virginia Beach as well as the TCC Jeanne and George Roper Performing Arts Center in Norfolk’s theater district, the Visual Arts Center in Olde Towne Portsmouth, the Regional Automotive Center in Chesapeake, and the Regional Health Professions Center and the Advanced Technology Center in Virginia Beach, as well as the Regional Workforce Development Center in Suffolk. Forty-five percent of the region’s residents attending a college or university in Virginia last fall were enrolled at TCC. For more information, visit www.tcc.edu.
