North Central College interim president announcement garners media attention

Dr. Donna M. Carroll joined the Cardinal Community as a search for permanent president begins

The Board of Trustees of North Central College announces the appointment of Dr. Donna M. Carroll as Interim President, effective August 1. The acclaimed academic leader, who recently completed a 27-year presidency of Dominican University in River Forest, will guide the College until a new permanent president is appointed.

Dr. Carroll retired from Dominican University in July 2021. During her tenure there, she substantially grew the university’s enrollment, doubled the number of full-time faculty, created new schools, launched academic programs, modernized the campus, and raised more than $165 million.

The Board of Trustees implemented its transition plan when President Troy D. Hammond announced his resignation after leading the College for nearly 10 years. The Search Committee expects the board to appoint a permanent president before the start of the 2023-24 academic year.
