|FIRST ON WGIL: Carl Sandburg College Names New Interim Vice President
|FIRST REPORTED 6:30am 1/29/10 Carl Sandburg College will have another part of its administrative team in place when current college president Tom Schmidt retires at the end of June.
The CSC Board Thursday night voted to appoint current Associate Dean of Humanities and Performing Arts Julie Gibb, as interim Vice President of Academic Services effective July first at a salary of over $93,000 a year, and okayed the suspension of a search for someone to fill the role permanently.
The way the college evaluates administrators, Gibb will be in the position for 12 months, which likely will be extended to 18 months.
Gibb will take over when current vice president Doctor Lori Sundberg replaces Schmidt as president. Sundberg says there's a reason the college is filling the position this way.
"We think that we're going to have additional information from the state within that 18 month period of time," Sundberg said. "In addition, from Julie's perspective, 18 months provides an opportunity to provide some stability. It gives us one year to decide, on both sides, whether she's comfortable with that position. If not, it gives us that additional six months, then, to reactivate the search."
In a statement, Gibb says she's looking forward to helping the college through what will be a difficult financial time.
The CSC Board Thursday night also voted to honorably discharge the only instructor in the Electrical/Industrial Technologies program at the end of the current academic year.
The school is eliminating the program for now due to low enrollment numbers.
