President’s Welcome

Wayne Burton, Ed. D. EMCC Interim President

“I am both grateful and humbled by the opportunity to join an organization, which under Dr. Larson’s leadership has reached the cutting edge of programs and services that continue to carry students to their fullest potential. The students and the region have benefited from her leadership, which I hope to emulate during this transitional period.”

Burton served as president of North Shore Community College for 13 years before retiring in 2013 and previously worked at Salem State University and the University of New Hampshire. In 2011, he was appointed to the U.S. DOE Committee on Measures of Student Success, served as chair of the Massachusetts Community College Presidents’ Council in 2011-2012, and is the founding chair of the National Community College Consortium on Autism and Intellectual Disabilities.
