Johnson State College Assistant Director of Admissions Tommy O’Connor is the new president of the Consortium of Vermont Colleges (CVC), which represents 20 institutions and the Vermont Student Assistance Corp., a financial aid organization.
O’Connor will serve a one-year term as president of the CVC, composed of admissions officials who promote Vermont higher education, discuss trends and ways to increase enrollment, and offer professional-development opportunities. The CVC also hosts an annual bus tour of Vermont colleges for out-of-state high school guidance counselors.
He has been a member of the CVC, overseen by the Vermont Higher Education Council, since 2012 and is former chairman of the professional development committee.
“My main goal is to create official bylaws for the organization. This will make any voting matters or major decisions clear and concise for future members of the CVC,” O’Connor says.
