St. Clair College has a new president.

At a town hall meeting Thursday morning, it was announced that Patti France will be the new President effective September 1st 2015.

She brings to the job over 25 years’ experience in the post-secondary education sector. Over the past decade, she has experienced direct responsibility, at some point, for key College components including the Registrar’s Office, Human Resources, Student Services, Information Technology Services, Health and Safety, Facilities Management, the formal College interaction with both Faculty and Support Staff Unions, primary College interaction with the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities and all academic issues.

She is currently the  Senior Vice President of College Operations, where she has had direct responsibility for Academic Operations and has chaired numerous College Committees, including the Senior Operations Committee, which includes members of the Senior Management Team.

The Presidential Search Committee was made up of 13 Board members who were given the task of presenting a preferred candidate to the Board of Governors.

France was the unanimous choice of the Board of Governors, and will succeed current College President Dr. John Strasser, who will retire at the end of August 2015.
