New MCC President Looks Ahead

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

MSU Billings' Student Affairs Vice Chancellor is preparing to become Miles Community College's new president.

Dr. Stacy Klippenstein said his last day at MSUB will be January 3rd, and he will start at MCC on January 6th. Dr. Klippenstein said his background at MSUB will provide pathways for students who want to start at a two-year college, then move to higher learning. "I want to be able to assist with that, and having this background at MSU Billings I think can really help Miles Community College and the students there take a look at how to connect with the other four-year institutions in the state," Dr. Klippenstein said.

Dr. Klippenstein received his bachelor's and master's degree from MSUB. He said his main goal at MCC is to improve the school's declining enrollment.
