MONTPELIER — By unanimous vote, the Vermont State Colleges System Board of Trustees has elected J. Churchill Hindes as its chair.
Hindes will lead the 15-member board, which provides governance and stewardship for the VSCS and its institutions — Castleton University, Community College of Vermont, Northern Vermont University and Vermont Technical College.
“We are very fortunate to have the extraordinary talents and experience that Church brings to our board. He is a true believer in the VSCS mission and its people, and we will thoroughly benefit from his leadership as chair,” said Chancellor Jeb Spaulding.
A resident of Colchester, Hindes retired in 2015 as the vice president for accountable care at the UVM Medical Center and clinical associate professor of medicine. He succeeds Martha O’Connor, who remains on the board.
