William H. Duncan IV was selected as the sixth President of Sierra College in 2011. Willy (as he known to those who have met him) has revitalized the college’s facility master planning efforts resulting in a 20-year plan that includes a new science facility which will double the number of labs available for students, improve traffic and parking, and accommodate future growth in the district. Under his guidance and working closely with the Sierra College Foundation, the college opened its first centralized Veterans Center to support the growing population of returning service men and women. Willy is actively involved at the state level and serves on multiple committees and task forces. He is a board member of the Community College Facility Coalition (CCFC), the Association for California Community College Administrators, the Community College League of California (CCLC) Advisory Committee on Legislation, the Placer County Economic Development Board, and several Chambers of Commerce, including the Sacramento Metro Chamber. He is also a lifelong Rotarian. Willy and his wife, Melody, have two sons and a daughter and reside in Newcastle.
