Roger W. Davis has been named the ninth president of the Community College of Beaver County in Monaca, Pennsylvania. The college enrolls about 2,500 students, 7 percent of whom are Black. Dr. Davis has served as interim president since May 2018 and his appointment makes him the college’s youngest-ever president.

Since becoming interim president, Dr. Davis has secured more than $4.5 million in grants and gifts, developed a new long-term strategic plan, spearheaded community engagement activities, and secured new contracts with both faculty and staff unions.

Dr. Davis first joined the college in July 2016 as the executive vice president and provost. Prior to that, he served as associate vice president of instruction and academic services at SUNY Rockland Community College in Suffern, New York. Currently, he is involved in a wide range of professional and community organizations including the Beaver County Chamber of Commerce, the United Way of Beaver County, the Franklin Center of Beaver County, and the Middle States Commission on Higher Education.

“It has been a pleasure to serve as interim president over the last several months, and I look forward to continuing the momentum we’ve built,” said Dr. Davis. “CCBC is uniquely positioned to help both traditional and non-traditional students advance their careers and their lives, and I’m delighted to be able to continue working alongside such phenomenal faculty and staff and to continue engaging with our student body.”
