Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs Susan Henking and Chief Financial Officer Robert Cree will manage college operations until a new president is named. The Board is working to find the next leader for Wells College and will provide updates on the process.

Gibralter, who joined Wells in 2015, previously served as president of Frostburg State University and held various roles within the SUNY system. Despite recent financial challenges leading to the college’s planned closure, Gibralter was credited with significant campus improvements and new academic programs.
