Meet our leadership teamThe CCBC community is defined by a can-do spirit that cultivates opportunity, nurtures aspirations and celebrates accomplishments.
Governed by a Board of Trustees and CCBC President Sandra Kurtinitis, the provost and three vice presidents provide leadership over the college’s four administrative units — Instruction, Administrative Services, External Outreach Initiatives and Institutional Advancement — ensuring that CCBC is actively supporting faculty, staff and the surrounding community.

An experienced and respected educator, administrator and author, she has been a community college professional for more than 50 years.
