Greg Hodges

2021-22 Aspen New Presidents Fellow
Dr. Greg Hodges is the fourth president of Patrick & Henry Community College (PHCC) in Martinsville, Virginia after having served as the institution’s vice president of academic and student success services. Previously, he served at PHCC as the vice president of institutional advancement, effectiveness, and campus life (and executive director of the PHCC Foundation), the dean of academic success and college transfer, the dean of developmental education and transitional programs, and the Assistant dean of arts, science, and business technology. He began his career at PHCC as an adjunct and later full-time professor in the field of early childhood education, but his affiliation with P&HCC goes back further: He started 25 years ago as a student enrolled in teacher education courses.

Greg served as an elementary school teacher for Martinsville, Virginia City Schools. He holds degrees from The College of William and Mary (B.A. in education and theatre & speech), Bethany Theological Seminary (M.A. in Biblical studies), University of Phoenix (Master of Arts in educational leadership and supervision), and Trident University (Ph.D. in educational leadership and administration for higher education). As director for Patrick & Henry’s Southern Center for Active Learning Excellence (SCALE), Greg has traveled to more than 70 community colleges and trained thousands of faculty members and administrators throughout the country.

Upon receiving word of his presidential appointment, Greg stated, "When I stepped onto this campus for the first time 25 years ago as a student, I never dreamed I might one day step back onto it as the institution's president. It is indeed the honor of a lifetime for me to serve this college and community that my family and I love dearly."
