Office of the President
President Kavalhuna is responsible for leadership, management, development, and coordination of all departments, divisions, and functions of the College, both internal and external. He is the foremost public representative of the College, speaks in an official capacity for the College, and is the face of the College to many public audiences.
In collaboration with other leaders, President Kavalhuna establishes and communicates the vision and strategic direction of the College. Some areas of responsibility include planning, budget, academics, personnel, student services, facilities, fundraising, policy, reporting, and community relations.
The president works closely with six vice presidents who take primary strategic and operational responsibility for major functional areas of the College. This group of senior leaders comprises the President's Cabinet.
The President is hired by, and reports to, the Henry Ford College Board of Trustees, who are elected by the citizens of Dearborn.
