The Concord Consortium announced its new President, Chad Dorsey, at the meeting of its Board of Directors on October 28, 2008. “Chad was the unanimous choice of the Board and has its enthusiastic support,” said Board Chairperson, Pendred Noyce. “We look forward to vigorous, thoughtful leadership from Chad.”
Chad will move from the Maine Mathematics and Science Alliance, where he provided teacher professional development and developed educational technology projects. He is currently working on a joint program between CC and MMSA to introduce high school biology students to cutting-edge genomic data analysis by giving them access to tools and data used by leading genetic scientists.
Bob Tinker, the founder of the Concord Consortium, is retiring as President at the end of the year, but will continue to be involved in development and project management over the next two years.
