Guiding the Success of Northern Essex Community College
At Northern Essex, our college leadership recognizes that education provides opportunity and improves lives.
Our trustees along with our president and his cabinet are committed to working with our faculty and staff to help our students achieve their goals.
Comprised of community and business leaders, the NECC Board of Trustees includes nine members who are appointed by the governor to a maximum of two five-year terms as well as an alumni-elected member, who also serves a maximum of ten years, and a student trustee who serves for two semesters.
Dr. Lane A. Glenn has been president of Northern Essex Community College since 2011 and recently served as chairman of the Massachusetts Council of Community College Presidents.
He is focused on student success and passionate about finding ways to help students achieve their educational goals, especially students who are under-prepared for college. In addition, he is a strong advocate for colleges and universities as engines of economic and workforce development—particularly in Massachusetts Gateway Cities.
The college’s cabinet is comprised of the leaders of our academic, enrollment services, fundraising, marketing, workforce training, research, administrative, and technology areas, and they meet individually and collectively with the president to keep the college on track.
