Published: May 14, 2014
Dr. Corlis McGee was unanimously reappointed president of Eastern Nazarene College at the college’s recent Board of Trustees meeting.
McGee received unanimous support from board members, who reappointed her to a five-year term through 2019.
“Dr. McGee has moved Eastern Nazarene College forward in a number of key areas,” said Kenneth Mills, chairman of the Board of Trustees and district superintendent for the Mid-Atlantic District Church of the Nazarene. “Her continuity of leadership will be critical as the college builds upon the progress made during her first nine years as president.”
McGee joined Eastern Nazarene College as president in 2005, becoming the first female president of a U.S. Nazarene college. Under her leadership, ENC developed a comprehensive master plan to guide the college’s future growth. The college also made significant changes to its curriculum, completed major renovations of several campus dorms and buildings, and increased significantly the amount of scholarships and other financial aid awarded to students.
Prior to joining ENC, McGee served for six years as rector of European Nazarene College in Buesingen, Germany. Previously, she served as dean of graduate studies at Point Loma Nazarene University, and vice president for academic affairs and dean at MidAmerica Nazarene University, where she started the Master of Business Administration program and chaired the division of business administration. She taught for 13 years at Trevecca Nazarene University, serving three years as chair of the Department of Business and Economics.
McGee holds a BS in Business Administration from Trevecca Nazarene University, an MBA from the University of Tennessee and a Doctor of Arts in Economics from Middle Tennessee State University.
