Theresa Bryant has more than 25 years experience in higher education


NORFOLK, Va. – (March 19, 2004) – Tidewater Community College has appointed Theresa M. Bryant to the position of vice president for Workforce Solutions. Bryant, formerly vice president for Workforce Solutions and continuing education at Central Virginia Community College, joins TCC with more than 25 years of administrative and executive leadership at five institutions of higher education.

“Ms. Bryant brings to this position a thorough understanding of the complex issues involved in supporting and enhancing the workforce needs of a region such as Hampton Roads; a clear sense of vision for TCC’s Workforce Solutions initiatives; and a dynamic, hands-on approach to leadership,” says TCC President Deborah M. DiCroce. “Indeed, the college and the South Hampton Roads region will greatly benefit from her experience and expertise.”

During the past six years at CVCC, Bryant provided impressive executive leadership for Workforce Solutions and community education in Virginia’s Region 2000 – Lynchburg, Bedford and the surrounding four counties. Among her accomplishments, she developed and implemented major customized training programs for employers. Those programs combine work experience, employer-led training and community-college coursework, resulting in an associate of applied science in technology degree for the employee and a highly skilled, trained worker for the employer.

Recently, Bryant served as interim vice chancellor for workforce services for the Virginia Community College System. Prior to coming to Virginia, she was the director of public programs and contract training at Kennesaw State University in Georgia.

Originally from Jonesborough, Tenn., she holds an MBA from Columbus State University and a master of arts and bachelor of arts from Mississippi University for Women.

“I’m excited to be a part of this dynamic team at TCC as we continue to evolve our quality, cutting-edge training,” says Bryant. “I look forward to assisting the region’s industry, businesses, government and workforce as they compete in today’s global economy.”
