VERSAILLES, Ky. — Benjamin Mohler has been named vice president of resource development for the Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS). In this role, he will oversee the KCTCS Office of Development and Alumni Affairs and the KCTCS Office of Grants, Contracts and Sponsored Projects. He also will serve as executive director of the KCTCS Foundation.
“The colleges that comprise the Kentucky Community and Technical College System are a powerful force for our commonwealth,” Mohler said. “In addition to providing our students with high quality and affordable education, they are community partners equipped to meet the increasing needs of a growing economy.”
Mohler most recently served as assistant vice president for development at Eastern Kentucky University. His background also includes positions in philanthropy at The University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Cedarville University and The University of Texas at Austin.
He earned a master’s degree in philanthropy and development from St. Mary’s University of Minnesota and a bachelor’s degree in communication arts from Cedarville University. He is a Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE) and has earned the Advanced Certified Fundraising Executive (ACFRE) credential as well.
“Philanthropy is an investment that is guaranteed to pay exponential dividends—by improving the opportunity for students and changing the trajectory of their families for generations to come,” he said. “For that reason, I look forward to the opportunity to work with stakeholders that want to invest in and strengthen the KCTCS mission and, by extension, the future of Kentucky.”
