Delta Gets New Dean

Press Release -- Louisiana Delta Community College is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Bill Tulak as the Dean of Industrial and Process Science Technologies. “Louisiana Delta Community College wanted to take a bold step that would send a message and highlight the importance of technical education to the economic growth and well-being  of  Northeast Louisiana, so we created this brand new position to focus on just that”, stated Chancellor Hanson.

The emphasis of responsibilities for this new position will include planning, developing, leading and evaluating course offerings, and expanding professional technical offerings throughout the College’s service area. 

Tulak, who began work on Monday, August 4, 2014, says he is excited to begin work because he believes the Louisiana Delta Community College is uniquely set to impact growing and important industries. 

“A trained work force is essential to the region’s economy. The technical programs at Louisiana Delta Community College can provide the training needed to attract business and industry to the region,” Tulak said.
