Kish College's president has overseen several changes in 1st year at helm - BRETT ROWLAND, Daily Chronicle

Kishwaukee College plans to continue its focus on student success in 2017, with President Laurie Borowicz entering her second year at the two-year college. Borowicz left her position as vice president of student services for Northcentral Technical College in Wausau, Wisconsin, to become Kish College’s fifth president in January 2016. Two months later, the board announced a layoff plan to help the college plug an anticipated budget shortfall. The 24 layoffs were the first reduction in force in the college’s history and came as the school struggled with the fallout from the state budget standoff and declining enrollment. Later in the year, the college lost a number of administrators to other jobs. Among them were two chief financial officers. Other changes followed. The college slashed the number of athletic scholarships it offers, deciding instead to recruit more student-athletes from within the district’s boundaries.
