Tarrant County College appoints interim chancellor

Written by Mindia Whittier

The Board also voted for Dr. Gene Giovannini to immediately vacate his position as Chancellor.

The Tarrant County College District Board of Trustees has appointed an Interim Chancellor. Dr. Elva LeBlanc will serve in the role.

Since 2017, LeBlanc served as TCC’s executive vice chancellor and provost, overseeing the planning, development, and administration of the College’s core areas of academic affairs. She is also responsible for advancing TCC’s mission and strategic direction. LeBlanc has held several faculty and administrative positions at TCC, including serving as president of TCC Northwest from 2006 to 2017.

During her career, LeBlanc has been president of Galveston College, where she helped transform the institution into a “Learning College” with a focus on student learning, assessment and outcomes. Given the limited local and state funding, LeBlanc led in the acquisition of external funding from entities such as Federal Funds, Lumina Foundation and community giving.

She serves on several boards, including as chair of The University of North Texas Health Science Center Foundation, and is a member the TCU College of Education Board of Visitors.

LeBlanc earned her bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees from the University of North Texas.

LeBlanc was appointed as Acting Chancellor of TCC in February, taking over for former Chancellor Eugene Giovannini, who was placed on administrative leave as the community college conducted an internal investigation that examined accusations levied by a former employee. Dr Giovannini resigned as Chancellor of Tarrant County College District at the end of June.

Tarrant County College is one of the 20 largest higher education institutions in the United States. It has the second-lowest tuition of Texas’ Top 10 community colleges. The District provides comprehensive two-year college with six campuses in Fort Worth, surrounding communities and online.

TCC offers a wide range of opportunities for learners of all ages and backgrounds that include traditional programs, such as Associate of Arts or Associate of Applied Science degrees, workforce and economic development programs, technical and skilled trades programs, and customized training programs for area businesses and corporations. The organization also offers Weekend College, through which students can complete an associate degree in 18 months or less by attending class full-time through weekend and online classes.
