Shirley R. Pippins, Ed.D Suffolk Community College Trustee

SELDEN-At a meeting crowded with trustees, college administrators and local legislators, Suffolk Community College's Trustee Chairman Michael Hollander officially named the next president: Dr. Shirley Robinson Pippins.
Replacing Salvatore LaLima, who has had a 38-year career at the college and has been president since 1997, Pippins will be the first African-American woman to hold the post.
"When I met the three finalists, there was no question in my mind that Shirley Pippins is the most qualified candidate," LaLima added.
Like any other college president, Pippins will no doubt devote much of her time to curriculum development, fund-raising and faculty administration.But she will also have to address some controversial issues put forth by her predecessor.
But Pippins is no stranger to educational challenges or controversy.In 1991, she went to South Africa for the U.S. Information Agency to improve their educational system."I was in Durban, Zululand and Johannesburg during apartheid," she told the Long Island Press."[Their government] wanted me to set up community colleges, but just for blacks.They wanted the more prestigious colleges for the whites.So I decided to get out of there."Since 1995, Pippins has been president of Thomas Nelson Community College in Hampton, Va., but she is thoroughly familiar with education in New York.She was vice president of Westchester Community College and the dean of community services, adult and continuing education there.She also has a master's degree from Manhattanville College (and one from the University of Illinois) and a doctorate from Columbia University.Pippins declined to offer specifics about how she would improve SCC, explaining that she had to get familiar with the college first.
