Gaye Manning has served Southern Arkansas University Tech for over 33 years. Today, as Vice Chancellor for Finance and Administration, she’s faced with navigating the challenges of enrollment decline, significant budget cuts, and services reductions, and has managed to work with her team to do just that without cutting a single member of staff as a result.
Today on the show, Manning shares her love of higher education, of the friendships she has cultivated on her leadership team and the proud legacy of her institution as one of the original two-year schools in Arkansas. “I’ve never, ever had a thought about leaving higher ed. This is the perfect fit for me!”
