Dr. David Devier

Board gives high marks to GOCC president; extends contract through 2023

Glen Oaks President Dr. David H. Devier was rated by the Board of Trustees on a scale of 1 to 5 on forty-eight specific performance expectations during the August Board meeting. These expectations were divided among six broad categories covering fiscal management, external relations, internal relations, leadership, institutional performance, personal qualities and relations with the Board.

“President Devier received an overall rating of 4.43,” said Board Chair Bruce Gosling. “This rating compares favorably with his ratings in prior years.  Under Dr. Devier’s leadership during the last year we have continued to address campus safety issues and many years of deferred maintenance as well as updating aging educational facilities.”

“Further thanks to his leadership and the contributions of our entire staff,  as we have weathered the many obstacles caused by shutting down the campus in response to the Covid-19 pandemic and continued to provide education to our student body,” said Gosling. “Now we are preparing to open in the fall in a safe and responsible manner and hope to be able to continue to create new programs to better serve our community and to be leaders in local higher education.”

The Board has proposed to freeze Dr. Devier’s base salary in line with the rest of the college leadership and has set the term of his contract to continue through June 30, 2023.
