Everett Community College is welcoming two new vice presidents – Cathy Leaker, vice president of Instruction, and Robert Hill, vice president of Student Services.

Leaker and Hill were hired after a national search and visits to campus this month that included student, employee and community forums. They will start July 1.

“We are excited to welcome Dr. Leaker and Dr. Hill to Everett Community College. I am looking forward to working with them to enhance our efforts at increasing student achievement for many years to come,” said EvCC President Daria J. Willis.

Leaker, Ph.D., previously served as dean of faculty at City University of New York, Kingsborough Community College, where she oversaw faculty support and development, including the Kingsborough Center for Teaching and Learning, the Kingsborough Center for eLearning and the Kingsborough Historically Underrepresented Faculty and Staff Resource Center.

Hill, Ed.D., was dean of Student Services at Glendale Community College in California. He has more than 23 years of experience in higher education as an administrator, faculty member and coach.

One executive vice president was previously responsible for Instruction and Student Services. With EvCC serving more than 19,000 students every year, leaders are needed for each division.

The college received more than 70 applications for each position. Committees of students, faculty and staff reviewed applications.
