On June 5, 2020, Durham Technical Community College announced the conclusion of its presidential search with the selection of J.B. Buxton as the College's 5th president. J.B. Buxton, who is a longtime education leader in North Carolina, will join a community of dedicated faculty and staff who provide a unique opportunity for students that is focused on transformational social mobility. He begins service at the College in mid-July.
Durham Tech—a champion of learning and student success, teaching and service, and developing career skills for today and tomorrow—achieved remarkable progress under the leadership of President Bill Ingram. Following his announcement on October 8, 2019, that he would conclude his presidency after more than 35 years of service at the institution with 12 years as president, the Board of Trustees launched a search for Durham Tech’s fifth president.
