Interim President  - Felicia Davis

Felicia Davis has been named interim president of Olive-Harvey College, City Colleges’ center of excellence for transportation, distribution and logistics.  Most recently, Ms. Davis served as the Executive Director of the Public Buildings Commission, where she was responsible for the management of area public construction projects.  She also held roles as Commissioner of the Department of Buildings, Executive Director of the Mayor’s Office of Public Engagement and First Deputy Chief of Staff.  Previously, Ms. Davis spent ten years in administration at Kendall College, rising to Vice President of Operations and Student Administration, having directed student affairs, alumni relations, and career services.  She began her career as a Chicago police officer.  Growing up in Altgeld Gardens and Roseland, with a mother who attended Olive-Harvey College, Davis is no stranger to the college and surrounding community.  Like many City Colleges students, she returned to school as a working adult, earning a Master’s degree in Public Policy from Illinois Institute of Technology, pending thesis completion, and a Bachelor’s degree from Kendall College. 

“Felicia’s unique combination of experience in higher education administration, major public construction projects, community relations, and her ties to the institution were an uncanny fit for the leadership needs at Olive-Harvey College,” said Chancellor Salgado. “I hope to engage her immediately in reaching out to the community and Springfield to ensure Chicagoans don’t miss out on the tens of thousands of jobs coming to our region in the fast-growing TDL field as well as the opportunities created by the college’s general education, GED and ESL offerings.”
