Sylvia Kelley becomes PCC interim president -- Jeremy Brown's departure still unexplained

July17th, 2015

Sylvia Kelley, an experienced academic administrator, will serve as Portland Community College's interim president while trustees conduct a national search for the school's next leader.
PCC announced Thursday that the interim post would go to Kelley, who has served as acting president of Oregon's biggest post-secondary institution since May 18, when President Jeremy Brown was ousted.
Trustees still haven't explained why they cut ties with Brown, who left with a $300,000 severance package. PCC's elected Board of Directors picked Brown in April 2013 to head the community college with almost 90,000 full- and part-time students. The nuclear-physicist-turned-administrator had been booted in September 2012 from his job as president of Dowling College, a struggling four-year Long Island school with fewer than 4,000 students.
