Trustees at Northern Essex Community College in Massachusetts seemed poised to choose Lane Glenn to succeed David Hartleb, who is retiring in June after 15 years as president.
Glenn has been vice president of academic affairs since 2006 at the 7,439-student college with campuses in Haverhill, Mass., and Lawrence, Mass. Before joining Northern Essex, he was dean of academic and student services at Oakland Community College and director of learning services at Lansing Community College, both in Michigan.
Glenn co-authored a piece for NEJHE‘s final print issue on the male achievement gap and ways to close it.
New Connecticut Gov. Dan Malloy expressed support for state Higher Education Commissioner Michael Meotti, following the decision of state Education Commissioner Mark McQuillan to resign, effective Jan. 5, the day Malloy is inaugurated.
