Vt. Technical College names Moulton as first female president
MONTPELIER — Vermont Technical College has its first female president in the 150-year history of the college.
This past weekend, the Vermont State Colleges System Board of Trustees appointed Patricia Moulton as president of VTC after a months-long national search. Moulton, who has served as the Vermont Tech interim president since last September, was chosen to lead the school as its president beginning immediately.
In a unanimous vote, trustees affirmed Moulton’s leadership of the college in the last seven months, which has resulted in increased interest in the college by prospective students and continued stabilization of the colleges’ finances.
Before serving as interim president of Vermont Tech, Moulton served as Vermont Secretary for the Agency of Commerce and Community Development. As secretary, she facilitated the expansion of many Vermont companies, helped attract new companies, assisted in rebuilding Vermont after Tropical Storm Irene and helped create the nation’s first statewide comprehensive economic development strategy, which has led to millions in federal grants for Vermont. She was previously Commissioner of Economic Development and Commissioner of the Vermont Department of Labor. She is a 1981 graduate of UVM.
“Pat will be an excellent leader for the Vermont Tech of today and for the future,” VSCS Chancellor Jeb Spaulding said. “She is a gifted leader and administrator and fully devoted to providing the best student experience possible. She has already gained the trust and affection of the entire Vermont Tech community.”
“Pat envisions a robust role for Vermont Tech in our state’s economy. I am fully confident she will fulfill that promise and open new doors of opportunity for Vermonters along the way,” stated VSCS Board Chair Martha O’Connor.
