Inauguration of yves salomon-fernandez, ph.d.

GREENFIELD, Ill. — The board of trustees overwhelmingly voted to name Yves Salomon-Ferrand as president of Greenfield Community College, signaling a willingness to expand on what Robert L. Pura has achieved over the last 18 years.
Salomon-Fernandez, the current president of Cumberland County College in Vineland, New Jersey, and Julie White, senior vice president of student engagement and learning support at Onondaga Community College in Syracuse, New York, were tasked with making the decision.
“Julie White is a good choice,” said Clare Higgins, a GCC trustee and the executive director of Community Action Pioneer Valley, of the candidate that some trustees, including the head of the search committee, Amy Moscaritolo, said was their favorite walking into decision day on Tuesday.
Pura announced his resignation as president last August, saying in a speech to faculty, “It is now time for me to pass on — I believe I am ready to graduate.”
At the start of the meeting, all but two of the 11 trustees claimed that Salomon-Fernandez and White were their top two finalists.

Salomon-Fernández, who was recently awarded an AAC&U-Cengage Inclusion Scholarship, says, “We have to ensure colleges are student-ready, however they come to us.” “We’ve abandoned the notion that students should be college-ready.”
They also attend a first-year seminar that addresses topics such as connecting with others, creating college success strategies, becoming self-directed learners, pursuing a field of study, and developing an academic plan and mapping a route to graduation.
Greenfield administrators have also ramped up on-campus “public relations” campaigns, with students praising the effectiveness of academic therapy they’ve earned. According to Salomon-Fernández, these efforts also aim to improve students’ confidence in their ability to succeed in college.
“A lot of it has been about inspiring students and making them see the social capital they do have… Many come up with little ozcial scpatial, but they come with something, so how do we shift the frame to say you’ve worked hard to get here, and we know you can succeed…

The pandemic’s consequences for us as leaders were obvious from the start. In an unpredictably changing climate, we had to strike a balance between short-term decision-making and long-term sustainability. Second waves and new strains of the virus were being warned about by public health authorities, who had little idea when they would arrive or what effect they would have. They didn’t have a crystal ball, like higher education officials, to forecast the future. These experts provided us with the best knowledge they could, based on the best evidence they could find and a few prior experiences to guide them.
Of course, no president decided to deplete his or her savings just to have the pandemic last longer than anticipated, putting their organization in jeopardy financially during a decade that we had already predicted would be difficult for student enrollment. Many of us were worn down by the weight of these decisions, many of which had the face of a colleague or a student on them. We had to juggle caring for our own loved ones, assuming the role of teacher to our own children studying at home in a virtual world, and coping with deaths and illnesses on top of these professional challenges. Leaders were not immune to the psychological toll.
