The Board of Trustees of Minnesota State Colleges and Universities has named Stephanie Hammitt to serve as interim president of Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College. The appointment becomes effective July 1, 2018 following the retirement of the current president Larry Anderson.
“We cannot ask for a better interim leader for Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College,” said interim chancellor Devinder Malhotra. “She has tremendous support from both internal and external stakeholders, and is in an outstanding position to build upon the college’s partnership with the Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa and enhance the joint identity of the college as both a tribal and community college.”
Hammitt has served Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College for approximately 27 years and is currently the vice president of Finance and Administration. From 1990-1996 and 2008-2016, she was the Chief Financial Officer at FDLTCC; in the interim, she served on the Tribal College’s Board of Directors, including many as board chair.
From 1996 to 2008, she worked for the Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa as internal auditor and later was the Band’s comptroller for nearly seven years. She holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Minnesota, Duluth.
The search for a permanent president of Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College will begin in the fall of 2018.
