Carolyn Hull Anderson, a former Baltimore City Community College professor, has been named interim president of the school while it seeks a permanent replacement, the Board of Trustees announced Friday.
Anderson spent 30 years at BCCC, first as a professor and later as the assistant to the associate dean of arts and science. She also served as chairwoman of English, Speech, Foreign Languages, Art and Music and the director of the academic development program.
“I am grateful to the Board of Trustees for their faith in my ability to work with faculty, staff and students to move the College forward,” Anderson said in a statement.
In December, the BCCC Board of Trustees announced it had “separated” from former President Carolane Williams, who had been in the position since July 2006.
Board Chairwoman Rosemary Gillett-Karam said last month the college disliked the term “fired” but that it was seeking a “new vision” for the college.
Anderson returns to BCCC from Morgan State University, her alma mater, where she was an associate professor. She has also served as executive vice president and acting president at Cincinnati State Technical and Community College, and the dean of academic services at Broome Community College in Binghamton, N.Y.
