Board votes in favor of ASSET bill, tuition freeze for 2013-14

[Glenwood Springs, Colo.] The Board of Trustees of Colorado Mountain College today announced a unanimous vote to appoint Charles Dassance, Ph.D., as interim president of the college. Once all terms are agreed upon, Dassance will oversee the 12-location community college in north-central Colorado while the board seeks and appoints a president for the permanent position. Dassance was selected among three candidates following a final interview process Jan. 28. 

The role of president became available in December upon the resignation of Stan Jensen, Ph.D. During the interim period, the college’s elected trustees will conduct a nationwide search for a long-term candidate. Details of how the search will be conducted are yet to be determined.

“Each candidate we considered was outstanding. We couldn’t go wrong choosing any one of them,” said board trustee Pat Chlouber of Lake County. “Dr. Dassance seems to understand and can fulfill the mission we have in mind for the next few months, and we’re confident he’ll work well with our communities and add strength to our staff.”
