Dr. Mordecai Brownlee has been appointed president of Community College of Aurora (CCA).
Previously holding leadership positions at Blinn College District, the University of Charleston and Houston Baptist University, he currently serves as vice president for student success at St. Philip’s College. In his current role, Brownlee has seen enrollment rates increase at the institution.
Brownlee is also an adjunct professor at the University of Charleston School of Business and Leadership and an adjunct instructor at Morgan State University’s School of Education and Urban Studies.
“Raised by a single-mother who was an educator, I learned first-hand the importance of faith, hard work, sacrifice and the responsibility we have as educators to empower the minds and lives of students through equitable learning environments and ample student support,” Brownlee said. “CCA is an institution that has embraced this charge and as its president, every day I will be committed to serving as an example of the institution’s mission in action.”
