Restructuring for GOCC

A restructuring plan was announced Wednesday by Glen Oaks Community College officials, who said a loss in student enrollment and a drop in property taxes were major reasons the moves were necessary.

Glen Oaks President Gary Wheeler said the position of director of academic services will be cut. Meanwhile, another administrative position will be eliminated by combining the roles of dean of teaching and learning, and associate dean of extended learning and workforce development.

Furthermore, Wheeler said, the director of business services will become a part-time position.

The plan also eliminates an evening custodian, senior secretary to student services and counseling/advising, Wheeler said.

College officials said the Centreville-area school lost $200,000 in the last year due to a decline in property-tax revenue.
