The Brevard College Board of Trustees voted to appoint the Rev. Dr. David C. Joyce as the 13th president of Brevard College.
Described as an outstanding leader and educator, Joyce has more than 30 years experience in private higher education. He has served as the president of Ripon College in Ripon, Wis. since 2003.
The appointment comes after a national search that identified a number of talented candidates who were considered by the college’s Presidential Search Committee.
“Through extensive dialogue, Dr. Joyce has developed a solid appreciation of Brevard College – our history, culture, strengths, challenges, and opportunities,” said Reg Heinitsh Jr., chairman of Brevard College’s Board of Trustees. “The Trustees are confident that Dr. Joyce, with his excellent leadership qualities, experience, energy and commitment to our mission, will be an outstanding president.”
“I am excited and fortunate to have been chosen to serve as the next leader of Brevard College,” said Joyce. “I truly believe this college has unlimited potential as a church-related, residential liberal arts college. This is a crucial time for the college and I am looking forward to working with Interim President Charlie Teague over the next few months to make a seamless transition of leadership.
