ASHEBORO — Chad Conville, director of auxiliary services at Randolph Community College, recently graduated from the N.C. Community College Leadership Program, a seven-month program offering participants organized face-to-face and computer-based learning experiences to acquaint them with community college issues and to help them develop leadership skills. The graduation ceremony for the 29th class was held April 28 at Sandhills Community College.
While participating in the program, Conville traveled to Camp Caraway, Silva, Kinston and Winston-Salem to participate in sessions. Participants work in teams to create an ideal community college. The program’s structure is built on the platform that good leaders develop through an ongoing process of self-study, education, training, networking and experience.
Since Conville joined RCC in September 2009, he has worked in facilities support as evening coordinator and currently manages auxiliary services, which includes the Campus Store and Armadillo Café. He completed the President’s Educational Leadership Academy at RCC in spring 2012.
Conville previously worked as an assistant general manager for Consolidated Theaters in Wilmington. He earned a B.A. in Film Studies from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington.
The NCCCLP was developed in 1988 to provide leadership training to faculty and staff from the 58 institutions comprising the N.C. Community College System. Its goal is to train and develop future community college leaders.
