Lake Land College names Bullock president

The Lake Land College Board of Trustees announced Wednesday that Jonathan “Josh” Bullock will be the seventh president of the college, effective July 1, 2013.

“Dr. Bullock brings to Lake Land College a unique blend of experience in both the business and academic areas which make him an ideal candidate to lead the college into the future,” Lake Land College Board Chairman Carl Hart said.

During a special meeting Wednesday, March 6, the board of trustees voted unanimously to appoint Bullock to a three-year contract. Bullock is the vice president for strategic advancement at Moraine Park Technical College in Fond du Lac, Wis. He has an extensive background in strategic planning, new program development, marketing, grant funding and entrepreneurship.

“I look forward to continuing the nearly 50 years of excellence Lake Land College has in serving and educating students, the community and workforce. I look forward to strengthening these initiatives and collaborating with the community to lead the college into the future,” Bullock said.

Hart said the board was impressed with Bullock’s extensive experience in finance and fund raising.

“He understands the needs of this area and the importance in working with faculty, staff and students, along with local and state officials,” Hart added.

In his current position, Bullock partnered with regional community, industry, education and legislative leaders to assess future workforce needs in the Fond du Lac area and collaborated to form partnerships that addressed labor shortages.

Bullock said he plans to reach out and engage communities in the Lake Land College district to create a future direction for the college.

“This is their community college — we want to know what they would like their community college to be,” Bullock said.

During his campus visit on Feb. 25, Bullock said he met with many in the Lake Land College community and found everyone to be focused on the same goal — helping students succeed.
