Here is a message I sent to the College community regarding PCC’s new Vice President of Instruction at our West Campus:
I am pleased to announce that Dr. Gregory T. Busch is the College’s new Vice President of Instruction at West Campus.
Gregg, who fills a vacant position at West Campus, has more than 16 years’ community college experience as an adjunct faculty member, assistant professor, program coordinator, director, honors college dean, and as a member of the West Virginia University at Parkersburg board of trustees.
Most recently, Gregg has served as Dean of Academic Affairs: Liberal Arts at North Central State College, a two-year college in Mansfield, Ohio. As Dean, he has led college-wide initiatives in articulation and transfer, diversity and social justice, international education, and has built relationships that encourage college-going with high schools. He also served as Dean of Arts and Sciences at Washington State Community College, located in Marietta, Ohio where he also led extensive program and curriculum development.
Gregg also has experience elsewhere in the public and private sectors, having served 21 years as a certified forensic and death investigator for the Wirt County, W.Va., Medical Examiner, and as president and chief executive officer of the Busch Professional Group, an organization of several small businesses.
Gregg’s postsecondary education began at Parkersburg, W.Va., Community College. He has a Doctorate of Education – Higher Education Administration and Leadership focusing on community colleges from West Virginia University, a Master of Science – Community Medicine from West Virginia University, School of Medicine, and a bachelor’s degree in Mortuary Science from the Cincinnati College of Mortuary Science at Xavier University. He has additional graduate work in clinical psychology and sociology from Marshall University, Graduate College.
I want to thank the members of the search committee for their work. Also, Trina Felty should be commended for her leadership in the position in an interim capacity.
Gregg’s first day at the College will be Sept. 12. He reports to Dr. Morgan Phillips, President of the West and Desert Vista campuses. Please join me in welcoming Gregg to the College.
