The NC State Board of Community Colleges today unanimously approved the appointment of Dr. James T. “Tim” Brewer as the new president of Mitchell Community College. He replaces Dr. Douglas O. Eason who retires on March 1 after serving nearly 22 years as president.
Brewer is currently the executive vice president and chief academic officer at Mitchell. He came to Mitchell in 2005 as vice president for instruction with primary responsibilities for academic programs, institutional effectiveness, institutional and program accreditation, and library services. He served as a member of the President’s Council and as SACS liaison throughout the College accreditation process.
Prior to his service at Mitchell, Brewer was executive director of the State Board of Community Colleges where he led the senior administrative staff in all matters related to the State Board of Community Colleges, a 21-member board consisting of individuals appointed by the Governor, Senate, and House. In addition he worked as executive assistant to Martin Lancaster, then president of the North Carolina Community College System.
Brewer began his community college career as an instructor of agriculture and natural resources at Wayne Community College in Goldsboro. That experience led him to pursue a career in community college administration.
He received a doctorate in Education, Higher Education Administration, Adult and Community College Education, and a master’s degree in Recreation Resources from North Carolina State University. He received a bachelor’s degree in Recreation Administration from Mars Hill College.
Brewer is originally from in Carey, NC. He and his wife Shannon live in Mooresville and have two children.
