Significantly, he led a successful Middle States Commission for Higher Education accreditation review, which resulted in CCAC’s full accreditation for another eight years, and worked collaboratively with faculty and college leaders to develop and implement a comprehensive assessment plan. Also under his leadership, the college developed and launched cutting-edge academic and career programs; secured new state and federal grants; and embarked upon a major campaign to obtain funding to construct a new workforce training facility, expand workforce initiatives, and support two endowed faculty and several critical senior administrative positions. Additionally, President Bullock has spearheaded many capital projects, including the renovation of historic West Hall, establishment of a satellite site at the Energy Innovation Center, creation of a comprehensive energy savings project on CCAC’s South Campus, expansion of existing facilities, and the construction of a new college bookstore and CCAC’s first Starbucks on Allegheny Campus.
Before joining CCAC, President Bullock served as president of Schenectady County Community College in New York, as well as provost for both the Norfolk Campus and Virginia Beach Campus of Tidewater Community College, the second largest of 23 community colleges in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
