Dr. Natalie J. Harder has been inaugurated as the fifth chancellor of South Louisiana Community College.
Thursday's ceremony was held at the Cajundome Convention Center.
Harder, who was selected as chancellor after a national search, assumed the post in February 2012. She succeeded Dr. Phyllis Dupuis, a longtime administrator of Acadiana Technical College and interim SLCC chancellor. During Harder's first year, she oversaw the merger of SLCC and Acadiana Technical College.
University of Louisiana System President Dr. Sandra K. Woodley served as the ceremony's keynote speaker.
