Northwest Florida State College (NWFSC) is proud to announce the appointment of Dr. Henry Mack as Vice President for Academic Affairs. Dr. Mack brings a wealth of experience to the role, having served as the higher education and workforce system head for the State of Florida for four years.
As chancellor, Dr. Mack was responsible for Florida’s public and nonpublic institutions of higher education—overseeing a $3 billion dollar budget with a combined K-20 student enrollment of 1.5 million, annually. He led the Divisions of Florida Colleges, Career and Adult Education, Vocational Rehabilitation, Blind Services, the Florida Department of Education’s Office of Workforce Education and Educational Alignment, and the Commission for Independent Education.
“I am both grateful for and excited by the opportunity to serve the students, faculty, and staff of Northwest Florida State College,” said Dr. Mack. “As a first-generation college student and native Floridian, I look forward to helping NWFSC achieve continued excellence and impact.”
Dr. Mack was directly responsible for the State of Florida’s workforce education strategy, budget, operations, policy and finance, grants and administration, and, together with the Governor’s Office, responsible for all higher education and workforce education legislative and policy priorities.
NWFSC President Dr. Devin Stephenson expressed his enthusiasm for the new hire. “We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Mack to the NWFSC family. His experience and expertise will be invaluable as we continue to strive for excellence in our academic programs.”
