Glenn DuBois

Chancellor

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.

Assistant Vice Chancellor for Public Relations,

If Jeffrey Kraus had been a little bit bigger, he would be playing football for the Pittsburgh Steelers. If he could skate a little faster, he would be playing hockey for the Pittsburgh Penguins. Instead, Jeff – who was hired in early 2007 as the VCCS Assistant Vice Chancellor for Public Relations – spent years working as a national wire service, radio network and award-winning television reporter in Richmond, covering state government and politics.

His professional background includes strategic communications, speechwriting, and media relations for three years for Governor Timothy M. Kaine. He is a two-time graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University, most recently completing a master’s degree program in multimedia journalism. Jeff and his wife Lisa live in Short Pump with the most over-privileged dog and the meanest cat you could ever meet.
