VGCC names Dr. Kim Sepich as New Vice President
Vance-Granville Community College recently named Dr. Kim Sepich as its new Vice President of Learning, Student Engagement and Success. Sepich has longstanding North Carolina roots, having grown up in the Triad region and attended college in the western part of the state. She has spent the past four years living in Franklin County, part of VGCC’s four-county service area.
Sepich earned her Bachelor of Science degree from East Carolina University in 1992. She subsequently earned her Master of Arts degree in Student Development from Appalachian State University (ASU) in 1995 and her Doctor of Education degree in Educational Leadership in 2011, also from ASU.
Sepich has most recently served as the Director of College Services at the NC State University Belk Center for Community College Leadership and Research . Prior to that role, she served as Vice President of Student Affairs at Valencia College in Orlando, Florida, from 2016 until 2018; the Associate Vice President of Student Services for the North Carolina Community College System from 2014 until 2016; and various leadership roles at Davidson-Davie Community College (DDCC) and Forsyth Technical Community College (FTCC) between 1999 and 2014. Additionally, she intermittently served as faculty at DDCC, FTCC, and ASU.
The incoming vice president has demonstrated a heart for investing back into her community. During her time at DDCC, she served as a mentor and board member for Communities in Schools, an organization whose mission is to surround students with a community of support and empower their achievement in school and in life. Additionally, she currently serves as lead facilitator for the NC Community College Leadership Program. Since its establishment in 1989, NCCCLP has equipped community college leaders across the state to “connect, care, and collaborate.”
“I am incredibly excited about serving Vance-Granville Community College and feel fortunate to have the opportunity,” states Sepich. “The college’s dedication to student success and meeting community needs is what drew me to the position. It is clear that VGCC is indeed a catalyst for creating opportunity for individuals and employers, and I’m looking forward to contributing to its mission.”
Dr. Sepich assumes her role at the college on Monday, February 20.
