Hodges University Welcomes Dr. David B. Borofsky as Interim President O n December 1, 2014, Hodges University Board of Trustees announced the selection of Dr. David B. Borofsky as interim president. He succeeds Dr. Jeanette Brock, who retired on December 31, 2014, after more than two decades of service with Hodges. Dr. Borofsky has over 30 years of experience in leadership positions with public universities, community colleges and for -profit institutions nationwide. “Dr. Borofsky brings the perfect mix of institutional leadership, fundraising and educational experience to the position at Hodges University,” said John Agnelli, Chairman of the Board for Hodges University. “We are especially pleased that he is coming onboard immediately, ensuring there will be a seamless transition of leadership.” Dr. Borofsky most recently served as president of Dakota State University in Madison, S.D. He originally was appointed as the institution’s interim president in February 2012 and ascended to the role of permanent president just four months later as a result of widespread campus and community support. During his tenure at Dakota State, Dr. Borofsky led the creation of a five-year strategic plan that included significant enrollment management goals. In the first year of this plan, student retention increased 9.4 percent. “Dakota State is similar to Hodges University in many ways,” said Keith Arnold, Vice Chairman of the Board for Hodges University. “The institution has approximately the same number of graduate and undergraduate students with a unique technology mission. In fact, nearly half of its programs are available fully online. Dakota State also has a significant number of non-traditional, adult learners much like Hodges University. ” Prior to serving as president of Dakota State, Dr. Borofsky was provost at Westwood College in Denver, Colo. Before that, he served as president of Bates Technical College in Tacoma, Wash. Dr. Borofsky also previously served as vice president, District Office for Colorado Mountain College in Glenwood Springs, Colo., and as its campus dean for both the Timberline Campus in Leadville, Colo., and Vail/Eagle Campus in Vail, Colo. Currently a resident of Tucson, Ariz., Dr. Borofsky earned his Doctorate in Educational Administration and Supervision from Rutgers University in New Brunswick, N.J. He also holds a Master’s degree in Education and a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Springfield College in Springfield, Mass.
