About Jerry Ice

Jerry IceDr. Jerry Ice joined Cambridge College as Interim Provost in March of 2019. For 18 years, Dr. Ice served as Provost at Thomas Edison State University and President of the Graduate School USA for 13 years.  He led faculty and staff in academic strategic planning as well as institutional planning and assessment.  He guided program development and assessment, empowering students, data driven learning outcomes, enrollment growth, and community engagement.  In addition, Dr. Ice served as the Dean of the School of Continuing and Nonresident Education at the Indiana University of Pennsylvania, where he was responsible for delivering credit and non-credit programs to more than 13,000 students and provided opportunities for adults to participate in short courses and community service programs. Like Cambridge College, the School of Continuing Education’s programs were characterized by innovation and experimentation in educational philosophy, teaching methods and techniques. The learning activities were designed to meet the educational needs and goals of working adults. 

Most recently, Dr. Ice completed a two-and-a-half year assignment through The Registry as Interim Academic Dean at Three Rivers Community College in Norwich, Connecticut.  During his tenure, he was able to empower the faculty through effective communication and transparency, which led to a healthy respect for the Academic Affairs Office.  He also led the campus in completing a Strategic Three-Year Plan, a NECHE Five-Year Report, gained approval for 12 new faculty positions, and converted 13 special faculty appointments to tenure positions, implemented new online degree programs (first ever online degrees), and held a number of Professional Days focusing on General Education outcomes, Pathways for Success, retention, structured schedules, and Early College programs with local high schools, imbedded tutors in Math and English classes and assessment of student learning.
