"She will be notified when I get to my office," she said. "I'm going to call her now."
None of the four finalists to the position attended the meeting because their presence was not requested, said Director of Communications and Marketing Ann Ransford.
Twenty people applied for the position, seven were moved to the screening phase and four made it to the final interview.
Levy created a campus interview committee to facilitate the selection process, which allowed students and faculty to be a part of choosing the right candidate to fill the position.
"Basically, the decision was based on the recommendations of all the segments throughout the process," Board of Trustees President Armine Hacopian said.
In all the public forums and interviews, students and faculty gave Lindsay the No. 1 ranking, Hacopian said.
The position will require Lindsay to monitor the curriculum, academic services and faculty, said current Vice President of Instruction Steve White.
"The position focuses almost entirely on the academic process on campus," he said.
White will officially step down from his post on Dec. 31 after more than 20 years of service to the college.
The new vice president will have to spend some time getting used to the school's ins and outs, White noted.
"Every campus has its different way of conducting business," he said. "We have an elaborate system of shared governance."
White first came to the college in 1984 as an economics professor. He was appointed vice president of instruction five years ago.
