Today, Erie County Executive Mark C. Poloncarz issued the following statement regarding the appointment of Dr. Dan Hocoy as the 11th President of Erie Community College (“ECC”):

“I welcome President Dan Hocoy to Erie Community College and the Erie County family. As a member of the search committee I know we were presented with several outstanding candidates to choose from to lead the college. It was quite clear to me and others on the committee ECC needed a transformational leader as its next president. Dr. Hocoy’s personal and professional experience, innovative educational approach, and extensive administrative knowledge make him the perfect choice to lead ECC. I look forward to working with him in the coming years to ensure the college is the best it can be for our community and most importantly our students.”
