Vernon Crawley, president of Moraine Valley Community College (MVCC) in Illinois and the longest-serving college/university CEO in the state, will retire June 30. Since coming to the college in 1991, Crawley’s overarching emphasis has been on student success. Under his leadership, MVCC was selected as a Vanguard College of Learning—one of 12 community colleges in the U.S. and Canada to receive the designation. Crawley has served on numerous local, regional and national boards, including a three-year term on the board of directors of the American Association of Community Colleges, the League for Innovation in the Community Colleges and the American Council in Education. In 2009, he received the Marie Y. Martin Chief Executive Officer of the Year from the Association of Community College Trustees, and in 2005 was named the regional and national Communicator of the Year by the National Council for Marketing and Public Relations.
