In Memory of Ken Kalb, Former CCV President

The CCV community is mourning the loss of former president Kenneth G. Kalb, who passed away on Saturday, May 30th.

Ken Kalb was CCV’s third president, serving from 1983-1991. He is celebrated for bringing organizational leadership to a young institution and for creating the strong foundation on which CCV remains today. Under his leadership in the 1980s, CCV grew into the second-largest college in Vermont. Enrollment more than doubled, and the College expanded its presence to include the 12 academic centers it maintains today. Kalb oversaw CCV’s transformation from a decentralized network of offices and classrooms to a cohesive, statewide institution.

The CCV community sends condolences to Kalb’s family. He will be remembered for his kindness and for his fierce commitment to CCV’s mission of providing access to higher education for all Vermonters.

In lieu of flowers, donations in Ken’s memory can be made to the Community College of Vermont, Attn: Founders Fund, Director of Development, 1 Abenaki Way, Winooski, VT 05404.
