Central New Mexico Community College Appoints Tracy Hartzler as Its Next President

Tracy Hartzler has been chosen as the next president of Central New Mexico Community College in Albuquerque. Hartzler is expected to take over for Katharine Winograd, who has led the Albuquerque community college for the past 12 years sometime in early 2020.

Central New Mexico Community College enrolls more than 23,000 undergraduate students, according to the latest figures provided to the U.S. Department of Education. Women make up 58 percent of the student body.

“It’s a tremendous honor to serve this community this way and to be able to live CNM’s values,” Hartzler said. “There’s no question that a community college is where you can make the greatest impact on people’s lives at many points in their life. Whether you are high school students trying to figure out what to do next or an adult who wants to come back and gain some distinct skill or certificate. And there’s an intergenerational component (at community colleges) that is incredibly moving to me, and very consistent to my faith background and my commitment to public service.”

Hartzler is currently the college’s vice president for finance and operations. She first joined the staff at the college in 2015.

A native of northern Indiana, Hartzler earned her bachelor’s degree at Saint Mary’s College in Notre Dame, Indiana. She holds a master’s degree from the University of Virginia and a law degree from the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C.
