Conway Jeffress, president of Schoolcraft College in Livonia, Michigan, has announced that he will step down. The timing of his departure has not yet been determined. Dr. Jeffress has led the community college since 2001. He first joined the staff at the college in 1982.
“Leading Schoolcraft College has been an incredibly rewarding experience,” Dr. Jeffress said in the news release. “I’m extremely proud of the growth the college has experienced, the rewarding relationships I’ve built and our service to the community. This is a difficult decision, but I feel the timing is right because I depart knowing that Schoolcraft College is in outstanding academic and financial standing and primed for even more growth and success in 2020 and many years beyond.”
The community college enrolls nearly 10,000 students, according to the latest data supplied to the U.S. Department of Education. African Americans make up 14 percent of the student body.
