Two Women Presidents Announce Their Retirements

Charlotte P. Morris, the ninth president of Tuskegee University in Alabama, has announced that she will retire at the end of the current academic year.

“My hope is that I am leaving a legacy that shows the power of collaboration, the importance of integrity, and the value of servant leadership,” President Morris said. “I am also proud of raising millions to expand research, providing resources to ensure students in need are able to continue their academic pursuits, and watching our enrollment grow.”

President Morris has served the university for almost 40 years in different capacities including chief of staff to the president and secretary to the board of trustees. Dr. Morris also served as the director of the university’s Title III program and has acted as interim and associate dean in the Brimmer College of Business and Information Science.

Dr. Morris is a graduate of Jackson State University in Mississippi, where she majored in business education. She holds a master’s degree from Delta State University in Cleveland, Mississippi, and a Ph.D. in education and business management from Kansas State University.

Milwaukee Area Technical College President Vicki J. Martin, will retire from the college effective June 30, 2024.

“This month, I celebrated my 35th year at Milwaukee Area Technical College, and it has been an honor to serve this college in many ways over that time. During my first week of employment, I knew that I had come to the right place,” Dr. Martin said. “My professional goals and the college’s mission were perfectly aligned around students and their success. My pride is fueled by the remarkable accomplishments we have achieved together and the value we provide to students, employers, and the community we serve.”

Dr. Martin began her career with MATC in 1988. She was named vice president of the Oak Creek campus and director of strategic planning in 2004. In 2007, she took over as executive vice president and provost. She was named president of the college in 2014.

A Milwaukee native and first-generation college student, Dr. Martin holds a bachelor’s degree in sociology from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, master’s degrees from the University of North Dakota in counseling and guidance, and Cardinal Stritch University in business management, and a doctorate degree in educational leadership and policy analysis from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
