Kendrick is "Exemplary Leader"

NEW HAVEN — Gateway Community College President Dorsey L. Kendrick has received the 2009 Exemplary Leader Award from the Chair Academy.
Kendrick, described as "an unabashedly confident chief executive who is unafraid to think differently," has led Gateway Community College to become the second largest of the 12 Connecticut Community Colleges and the tenth largest institution of higher learning in the state, the college said in a statement. The college also has seen a 90 percent increase in credit enrollment over the last eight years, adding programs in healthcare, sustainability and entrepreneurship to meet the region’s demand for a qualified workers in those fields, the statement said. Largely due to "her tireless advocacy," the college will break ground on a new 380,000 square foot campus in downtown New Haven this fall, the statement said.
Chair Academy is an international organization with a mission is the "design and promotion of world-class training programs and services to advance academic and administrative leadership for post-secondary institutions" and to provide training to organizational leaders.
