Elva LeBlanc, Ph.D. has been named Chancellor of Tarrant County College today following a vote by the Board of Trustees to offer the position to LeBlanc. Dr. LeBlanc becomes the sixth chancellor of the Tarrant County College District.
The Board of Trustees sat as a committee of the whole as an Executive Search Committee to consider filling the position of Chancellor and recommended Dr. Elva LeBlanc for that role. Following the process set forth in Texas Government Code 552.213, the Board voted to name Dr. LeBlanc the sole finalist for the position at the Board’s Retreat on November 5, 2022.
LeBlanc served as acting chancellor following TCC’s previous chancellor being placed on administrative leave, and as interim chancellor following his resignation.
Board President Teresa Ayala commended LeBlanc for her administration during this period of transition for the College. “Dr. LeBlanc demonstrated exceptional leadership as acting and interim chancellor. She kept the institution focused and advanced TCC’s mission and strategic direction.”
LeBlanc has more than 25 years of experience in higher education administration including serving as president of Galveston College and president of TCC’s Northwest Campus. While serving as acting and interim chancellor for the College, she continued her role as executive vice chancellor and provost.
“This is an incredible honor—one I don’t take lightly,” said LeBlanc. “I look forward to continuing to serve our students and community along with our remarkable faculty and staff. TCC has so much to offer and makes a tremendous difference in our students’ lives daily.”
LeBlanc holds bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees from the University of North Texas.
