By Hutchinson Community College


HUTCHINSON, Kan. — Hutchinson Community College President Carter File announced on Thursday his intent to retire in 2024.

File submitted his request to the college board of trustees indicating his intent to retire effective August 31, 2024.

“My time at HutchCC has exceeded any expectations I may have had when we made the decision to come here. The leadership of the board, our faculty and staff, and of course the students has made coming to work every day a real joy,” File said Thursday.

File is the college’s seventh president. He started at HutchCC in 2005 as the Vice President of Finance and Operators. He was elevated to the presidency in July 2014.
His retirement will end his more than 24-year career in higher education.

The college will conduct a national search to replace File. The search will be managed in-house and will be led by a search committee that will be named in the coming weeks.
