Tidewater Community College Names New Vice President for Administration

NORFOLK, VA – (Oct. 1, 2003) – Franklin T. Dunn has been appointed to the new position of vice president for administration at Tidewater Community College (TCC) effective October 15, 2003. Dunn is currently the executive assistant to the president. In his new position, Dunn will be responsible for TCC’s functional areas of human resources; facilities management, planning, and development; media relations; marketing; and special events.

“TCC and its core administrative areas will greatly benefit from Mr. Dunn’s experience and expertise in this vice presidential position,” said TCC president Deborah DiCroce. “He has a thoughtful approach to leadership, a proven record of sound executive judgment, a thorough understanding of the complex issues facing TCC, and a clear sense of vision for this new position’s role in addressing those issues.”

Dunn, a retired Navy captain who commanded both a submarine and a destroyer tender, joined TCC three years ago. Previously, he had worked in the institutional research and distance learning areas at Old Dominion University, where he also completed advanced graduate studies in higher education administration.

Tidewater Community College is the second largest of the 23 community colleges in the Commonwealth of Virginia, enrolling more than 34,000 students annually. It is the 37th largest in the nation’s 1,600 community college network and among the 50 fastest growing large community colleges. Founded in 1968 as a part of the Virginia Community College System, the college serves the South Hampton Roads region with campuses in Chesapeake, Norfolk, Portsmouth and Virginia Beach, a regional Visual Arts Center in Olde Towne, Portsmouth, the TCC Jeanne and George Roper Performing Arts Center in the theater district in downtown Norfolk, and a regional Advanced Technology Center in Virginia Beach. Forty-three percent of the region’s residents attending a college or university in Virginia last fall were enrolled at TCC.
