MnSCU Chancellor Steven Rosenstone announced last week that MCTC President Phil Davis has been appointed to his cabinet as associate vice chancellor and will serve as the next managing director of the Campus Service Cooperative.
In a letter to the College sent on May 27, 2014, President Davis said, “I am excited about this new chapter in my professional life; I feel good about what we have accomplished for our students and the City of Minneapolis during my tenure as president of MCTC and I am eager to continue the partnership work that I love to do. Fortunately, my new role will allow me to continue working with all of you and with my colleagues from around the state. I will be leaving the presidency in September, 2014.”
As part of the transition, an interim president will be named. Chancellor Rosenstone has released a memo calling for nominations of internal MnSCU candidates and will visit the campus to consult with students, faculty, staff and community leaders on the qualities critical to the interim president. The session will be held on Wednesday, June 4, from 3–5 pm on the MCTC campus. For those who are unable to attend, the Chancellor says, “I want to hear from all voices. Knowing that summer means that many students and faculty members may not be on campus and available to meet with me on June 4, if you are unable to join me in person, I welcome you to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.”
