Cleveland State President, Dr. Bill Seymour, has announced his plans to retire during the summer of 2022. Seymour began his CEO duties at the college in January of 2014. He told CSCC employees during a Town Hall meeting that he believes this will be a good time to step-down both for himself and the college. He expressed his gratitude to God for calling him to serve others through this position. Seymour is completing his 43rd year in higher education administration which has included large state universities, small private colleges and community colleges. Thirty of those years have been in Vice President and President roles. Seymour said his announcement at this time was to allow the Tennessee Board of Regents time to approve a plan for selecting the next President and conduct a search process during the Spring 2022 semester. Seymour anticipates that his last day in office will be June 30, 2022.
