Dr. Clay Railey, previously a faculty member at Chesapeake College, will return to campus this summer as the new vice president for academic affairs.
Dr. Railey left Chesapeake in 2006 to join the faculty of Delaware County Community College, where he was the dean of communications, arts and humanities. He was later named provost of Bucks County Community College in 2014
“I had such a terrific 11 years teaching here that I have always wanted to return; great faculty and staff; great students, and a world of opportunity and potential define Chesapeake for me,” Dr. Railey said of his return to Chesapeake. “The college provides our citizens with an opportunity to get an education and a job for the 21st Century. Chesapeake is an agent of change and sustainability.”
Dr. Railey, an Oxford resident, graduated from Dickinson College with a bachelor’s degree in English. He earned a master’s degree at St. Louis University and a Master’s of Divinity at the Jesuit School of Theology. He holds a doctorate in English from Vanderbilt University.
