Alfred Williams
I was appointed President of RVCC in 2018 with over 20 years of higher education experience.  During my career, I have focused on encouraging students to graduate on time and with as little student loan debt as possible.  I am always amazed at the accomplishments of our students who are often balancing families and careers while working diligently in classes.  This dedication pays off and our graduates are in high demand and embark upon careers or transfer after graduation.  River Valley is a special place where the faculty and staff are dedicated to student success and I am proud to be a part of the RVCC community.
