Dr. Richard Teaff, President of Dabney S. Lancaster Community College, will retire at the end of the 2012-2013 academic year. Teaff said a ten- to twelve-month notice allows time for a national search to be conducted so that a successor is in place by July of next year.
Dr. Teaff will complete his eighteenth year at DSLCC and 44 years in education. During his tenure at the College, new programs were developed in many areas, facilities were built and others upgraded, the Rockbridge Regional Center was established, more student services were established, and workforce development programs were expanded. The College’s first major gifts campaign was conducted to build up the College’s Educational Foundation. Articulation agreements for students to transfer to four-year colleges were expanded to public and private colleges in Virginia and other states.
The timeline and process for selecting Dr. Teaff’s replacement will be determined by the Virginia Community College System Chancellor during the Fall.
