Ronald Cantor named president of Southern Maine Community College

Kennebec Journal June 24, 2011
Along with a new campus, Southern Maine Community College will have a new president and two new programs this fall.

The Maine Community College System Board of Trustees voted Wednesday to appoint Ronald G. Cantor, a community college administrator from New York, as president of the college.

He will replace James Ortiz, who is retiring this summer after 10 years as Southern Maine Community College president. More than 50 people applied for the job, system President John Fitzsimmons said.

Cantor, 50, is associate vice president and dean of Mohawk Valley Community College in Utica, N.Y. That college has slightly fewer students than Southern Maine Community College, Cantor said.

The bigger difference is the growth rate at Southern Maine Community College: The college had 2,800 students when Ortiz became president a decade ago, Fitzsimmons said, and has 7,000 now. The new Midcoast campus, at the former Naval Air Station Brunswick, should accommodate another 2,000 students.

"It's clear that they've done a good job of doing everything they can to serve their growing enrollment with quality," Cantor said. "But the enrollment growth has been so strong that it's both a challenge and an opportunity."
