Scott Schulz named Grand Canyon Community College’s Vice President of academic affairs

Scott Schulz was named vice president of academic affairs for Glendale Community College.

After a yearlong, nationwide search for candidates, Glendale Community College has appointed Scott Schulz as its vice president of academic affairs.

Schulz has been serving in this role in an interim capacity since July 1, 2018. He assumed his permanent role May 23.

Moving forward, Schulz will provide oversight to the college’s academic departments and academic support services. He will also direct and evaluate college instructional offerings to meet student, community and industry needs.

He will manage a budget of $38 million and will lead 276 residential and 600 adjunct faculty members.

The vice president coordinates college curriculum development, assures compliance with all regulatory agencies and promotes innovative approaches to teaching and learning.

Previous to his position as interim vice president of academic affairs, Schulz served as the dean of instruction for career and technical education for six years, and director of career services for eight years.

“His vast knowledge of academic affairs combined with his experience as the dean of career and technical education and director of career services aligns with my vision of providing opportunities for our students while working collaboratively with GCC’s faculty and staff,” Glendale Community College President Dr. Teresa Leyba-Ruiz said.

“I am positive he will continue to support his colleagues here on campus and across MCCCD while also building strong relationships with our external partners.”
