The University of the District of Columbia is spinning off a two-year community college. The controversial new school has no students yet, but Dr. Eurmon Hervey has been appointed to head the new institution.

Dr. Hervey is the former assistant state superintendent for post-secondary education and work force readiness in  DC’s State Office of Education and has served as UDC’s Acting Provost for the past year. The last appointment was not admired by some members of the  UDC faculty, but critics think the community college job may be a better fit.  

Eurmon Hervey attended Edward Waters College and Clark Atlanta University (BA, Mathematics), did his postgraduate work at Vanderbilt (Doctor of Education, Higher Ed/Institutional Advancement) and Harvard’s Graduate School of Education (Master of Education, Administration). He served as Assistant Vice President for Institutional Advancement at Tougaloo College, and taught at Delta State University.

UDC, the only urban college in the Land-Grant system, has a troubled history. Cobbled together from older institutions, it is less successful than any of its its predecessors, prestigious Connecticut Avenue address notwithstanding.
