Vice President for Academic Affairs George Wasson and Vice President for Student Affairs Stephen Petersen have been selected by a national review panel as two of only 33 community college leaders to attend the prestigious Executive Leadership Institute sponsored by the League for Innovation in the Community College. The 33 participants were chosen from those who hold leadership positions in community colleges throughout the United States, Canada and New Zealand.

Gerardo E. de los Santos, president and CEO of the League for Innovation, said, “The review panel was extremely impressed with the quality of the applicants, which speaks well for the future vitality of the community college.”

The League is an international association dedicated since 1968 to catalyzing the community college movement. This year's Executive Leadership Institute will be held December 6-11, 2009, in Scottsdale, Arizona. It provides an opportunity for potential community college presidents or those in transition to review their abilities and interests, to refine their skills, and to participate in discussions on leadership with an outstanding array of faculty drawn from among nationally and internationally recognized community college leaders.
