He begins in January. His salary will be $140,000.

“I feel honored to have been selected for the position of acting president of Truckee Meadows Community College,” said Dalpe. “I have worked in higher education for nearly 20 years, 13 at TMCC, and each day have seen the difference we make in our students’ lives. TMCC and community colleges throughout the state and country continue to truly impact our local communities.”

TMCC’s president, Maria Sheehan, announced her retirement in August. She served as president for eight years.

“I would like to thank President Sheehan for keeping the college moving forward during the past eight years despite the worst of economic conditions,” Dalpe said. “The college, under her leadership, has maintained services, received more private financial support than ever before, and improved student access and success measures. I look forward to working with the faculty, staff and students at TMCC in the coming months to continue this momentum.”

The Board of Regents are going to do a national search for the next TMCC president. Dalpe will not be eligible to apply for the search and is expected to return to his chief-of-staff position when the new president begins..

Dalpe has been with TMCC since 2002.
