Tompkins Cortland Community College President Carl Haynes will retire on August 31, 2017. Haynes, the longest-serving president in the College’s history, will have been president for 23 of his 48 years at the College. Just the third president in the College’s history, he is the first to hold the position for more than two decades.
The responsibility of finding the next president belongs to the College's Board of Trustees. The Board plans to work with a search firm this fall with the expectation of selecting a new president late during the 2017 spring semester.
The College has announced 429 students have earned Dean's List recognition for the 2016 Spring semester. To make the Dean's List, students must be matriculated in a degree program and complete at least 12 credits with a GPA of 3.5 or better.
