Dr. Glenn DuBois was formerly the Commissioner and CEO of the New Hampshire Community Technical College System, where he had served since 1998. In this position he was responsible for
the statewide community college system with seven campuses and reported to the Governor. He was involved in both education as well as economic and workforce development initiatives there. 

Dr. DuBois became Chancellor of the Virginia Community College System effective July 16, 2001.

Considered an expert on the dynamics of community college teaching, Dr. DuBois received his doctorate of higher education administration, research and policy from the University of Massachusetts, specializing in higher education administration, research and college teaching.

 Prior to his current position, Dr. DuBois served the University of New York in numerous capacities, including Director of Community Colleges for the state system. The State University of New York has one of the nationís largest networks of community colleges.

Dr. DuBois brings to the VCCS a broad background in higher education and has a demonstrated record of successful leadership and academic performance. This experience includes achievement in working with the legislative and executive branches of government in New Hampshire and New York.

Dr. DuBois, who chaired the National Council of State Directors of Community Colleges from August 1, 2000 to July 31, 2001, has been active in the communities where he has lived and looks forward to a meaningful participation in the affairs of Richmond and the Commonwealth. We are very fortunate that this transition in leadership will be smooth and seamless. Dr. Oliver has bequeathed a wonderful community college system to his successor and together Drs. Oliver and DuBois will work to ensure that this change over is highly successful.

The National Council of State Directors of Community Colleges is an affiliated council of the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC).  The council provides a forum for the exchange of information about developments, trends, and problems in state systems of community colleges.  

Through our affiliation with AACC, we also strive to affect national legislation that impacts our colleges and state agencies.

This is the only Council that represents the collective interest of state agencies and state boards of community colleges.  This council is a valuable forum to help state directors deal with the changes in attitude and policies towards community colleges at the international, federal, state and local levels.  We will share information and learn lessons from each other to better serve the interests of our institutions in the coming years.
