MnSCU Names Interim President

June 10, 2010

Minnesota State Colleges and Universities Chancellor James H. McCormick said today he will recommend that the Board of Trustees appoint Jessica M. Stumpf as interim president of Anoka-Ramsey Community College in Coon Rapids and Cambridge.

Stumpf is vice president of academic affairs at Minnesota State College - Southeast Technical, with campuses in Red Wing and Winona.

McCormick also recommended Shari L. Olson as interim president of Anoka Technical College.

“We are pleased to recommend these two individuals, both of whom have strong credentials for the interim presidencies of the colleges,” says McCormick. “I am confident the candidates have the relevant experience suited to lead each college effectively during a demanding time.” The Board of Trustees is expected to act on both recommendations at a June 16 meeting.

In anticipation of the formal approval by the Board of Trustees and on behalf of the Board of Trustees and Chancellor James H. McCormick, a presentation of the Interim President-Elect of Anoka-Ramsey Community College is scheduled for:

Thursday, June 17, 2010
10 a.m.: Coon Rapids Campus, Legacy Room
11:30 a.m.: Cambridge Campus, G201

A reception will follow the presentation.

Stumpf previously served as dean of business at Hennepin Technical College; dean of transportation, coordinator of customized training, coordinator of enrollment and marketing and business instructor, all at Dakota County Technical College; and business instructor at Century College. She earned an associate degree at St. Cloud State University, a bachelor’s degree in business education at Buena Vista University, a master’s degree in business administration at Metropolitan State University and a doctorate in educational policy and administration at the University of Minnesota.

Stumpf will replace Patrick Johns, who has been named president of Lake Superior College in Duluth.
