Carla Chance is the newly appointed Executive Vice President at Cincinnati State Technical and Community College, providing leadership for human resources, student services, technology, facilities and security.
Ms. Chance previously served as Vice Chancellor for Finance and Business Services at St. Louis Community College from October 1999 to November 2011. There she was responsible for budget management, physical facilities, auxiliary services, financial resources management, and procurement. STLCC is a comprehensive urban community college serving almost 30,000 credit students and more than 90,000 continuing education and workforce enrollees annually. The STLCC system is comprised of four campuses, two extension centers and a downtown training center.
“Carla has the mix of qualities that I was looking for,’’ added Cincinnati State President O’dell M. Owens. “Moreover, she’s originally from this area, and she knows the turf around here.’’
Ms. Chance succeeds Dr. Carolyn Anderson, who recently retired.
During her time at STLCC, Ms. Chance coordinated five major construction projects, including the addition of a fourth campus, STLCC-Wildwood. Wildwood received the United States Green Building Council’s LEED Gold certification – the first Gold Building in the St. Louis Metropolitan area. Subsequent projects included the replacement Harrison Education Center, also a LEED Gold Project. Ms. Chance also provided leadership for the development of the STLCC’s first facilities planning document (master plan) and has also been heavily involved in e-commerce initiatives including payroll direct deposit, the student OneCard ID and disbursement system, and an electronic student tuition payment plan.
