Dr. Bill Law Jr. will begin his SPC presidency June 7. Law and the SPC Board of Trustees have agreed to his employment contract, which runs through June 30, 2013. Law’s performance will be evaluated annually.
Dr. Bill Law discusses student governance with Clearwater Campus SGA President Kelliann Ganoo during a visit with Clearwater Campus students.
Law’s base salary will be $330,000 a year, and the college will contribute up to $85,000 a year toward an annuity for his retirement. In addition, the college will provide a vehicle.
From 1981 to 1988, Law was vice president of institutional and program planning at what was then St. Petersburg Junior College. He also taught courses in microcomputer applications, as well as a freshman composition course.
Before joining SPC, Law served as president of Tallahassee Community College since 2002. During his time at TCC, the college broke ground on the 85,000-square foot Ghazvini Center for Health Care Education, which will allow students to study diagnostic medical sonography, emergency medical services, nursing, radiologic technology and respiratory care through cutting edge technology.
The college also established the Florida Public Safety Institute and the Advanced Manufacturing Training Center, a joint effort between TCC and the Economic Development Council of Tallahassee and Leon County.
Law also spent 10 years as the first president of Montgomery College (now Lone Star College—Montgomery) in Texas. In addition to planning and developing the college, Law designed the first university center for the college district, resulting in a 78,000-square foot facility at Montgomery College that offers 28 bachelors and 26 masters degrees through a consortium of six Texas universities.
