NHTI has announced its next president.

Dr. Gretchen Mullin-Sawicki, currently president of multiple campuses of the Community College of Allegheny County in Pennsylvania, will start in Concord on July 1.

Mullin-Sawicki, a dual citizen of the United States and Canada, began her educational career in New York as a Program Director for the Woodhull Institute for Ethical Leadership, a nonprofit retreat center, according to a press release.

She earned a Ph.D. from the University of Toronto and has taught as an adjunct faculty member in Toronto, Canada, Pittsburgh, Pa. and Tokyo. She has been at the Community College of Allegheny County for 17 years.

Prior to her role as president in Pennsylvania, Mullin-Sawicki was the Interim Provost and Executive Vice President for the College, as well as the Dean of Academic Affairs. She developed High School Academies, an enrollment program that students with defined pathways toward transfer and career education.

Mullin-Sawicki also assisted in the development of the Accelerated Professional Program, which initiated flexible weekend and evening scheduling of career programs for part-time working adults.

“Her background in the Pittsburgh area, working in higher education and building industry partnerships, will map extraordinarily well to many of the emerging industry sectors here, such as cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, manufacturing and other high-skill fields,” said Jeremy Hitchcock, chairman of the Community College System of New Hampshire board of trustees.

Mullin-Sawicki said she and her family are looking forward to joining the community in Concord.

“The college is a robust engine for economic advancement for the community, including workforce development and transfer preparation for our students,” Mullin-Sawicki said. “I am excited to work with the talented team at NHTI to continue the positive trajectory of the college, including leading NHTI in achieving key educational and workforce goals for the state, exploring creative programming to increase impact and retention, and always keeping inclusive student success at the center of our decision-making and strategic execution.”
