The Northern Pennsylvania Regional College (NPRC) Board of Trustees has named Susan Snelick as its next college president. Ms. Snelick brings extensive workforce development expertise to the position, having most recently served as the executive director of Workforce Solutions for North Central PA and holding various other workforce development leadership positions in the region spanning nearly three decades. The NPRC Board of Trustees believes that Ms. Snelick’s experience and skillset will serve the college well as it continues and builds upon quality academic and workforce development programming to meet the needs of the region.
The NPRC is a publicly-supported, not-for-profit regional college. To keep classes affordable and convenient for students, community locations across the NPRC’s nine-county service area are utilized to deliver class instruction through technology that enables face-to-face learning. NPRC offers dual enrollment opportunities, associate degree programs, and workforce development courses.
“I am truly honored to have been chosen as the next President to lead the Northern Pennsylvania Regional College,” said Ms. Snelick upon her appointment. “I now know that my life’s work has led me to this moment and most amazing opportunity. I am very fortunate to have a supportive Board of Trustees and a wonderful team already in place at NPRC.”
NPRC Board of Trustees Chairperson Kate Brock commented that Snelick has demonstrated throughout her career and the presidential search process that she is “a forward-thinking, action-oriented individual who is entrepreneurial and strategic in achieving her objectives.”
Among her professional accomplishments, Incoming President Snelick has served as the Regional Liaison for the National Association of Workforce Boards, been appointed to the Governor’s Middle-Class Task Force from 2017-2018, participated in the Disney Institute’s Leadership Excellence Program, and chaired the PA Workforce Development Association while also serving on the boards and advisory boards of several educational institutions.
Ms. Snelick resides in the St. Marys area, within the NPRC’s footprint. As she prepares to begin her work with the NPRC, Snelick notes, “We will continue to do great work, all for the betterment of the communities we serve.”
