Glenn DuBois


In the summer of 2001 the Virginia Community College System welcomed Glenn DuBois to serve as its new chancellor. Since then, he has led the 23-college system through its first and into its second strategic plan, rising to the challenge of enduring both unprecedented enrollment growth and unprecedented cuts in state operating funds.

During his tenure, Virginia’s Community Colleges have signed groundbreaking guaranteed transfer agreements with more than two dozen public and private universities; become Virginia’s leading provider of workforce development services, helped Virginia close headline-grabbing economic development deals; diversified community college funding sources, doubling foundation-led private fundraising; and have maintained a tuition rate that is one-third of the comparable rate at Virginia’s universities.

DuBois received his doctorate in higher education administration, research and policy from the University of Massachusetts. He began his career at a community college in New York.
