Dr. Humphrey has served as Missouri Valley College’s 13th president since January 2005. She is the first female president to serve MVC since its establishment in 1889. After 18 successful years as president at Missouri Valley College, Dr. Bonnie Humphrey has announced her retirement, stepping down on June 30, 2023.
Dr. Humphrey has been at Missouri Valley since 2000, first working as the dean of academic affairs before becoming the college’s president in 2005.
During her successful 18 year tenure as president, Dr. Humphrey has experienced much success moving Missouri Valley College forward. She led the institution through many major projects, including the creation of the Learning Center, a capital campaign that led to the construction of the Malcolm Center for Student Life, the establishment of the MVC School of Nursing, the addition of the college’s graduate degree programs, as well as the addition of new student housing facilities and the Walker C. Fletcher Athletic Complex. President Humphrey’s leadership also allowed for alumni engagement growth and growth in financial stability.
“The Board of Trustees of Missouri Valley College is extremely grateful for President Humphrey’s dynamic and effective leadership over her many years of service,” said Susan Hoy, Chair of the Board of Trustees. “We look forward to celebrating her accomplishments for the College as her retirement approaches.”
