College of Menominee Nation Names New President


Dr. Paul F. Trebian

Dr. Paul F. Trebian has been named President of the College of Menominee Nation (CMN), an accredited tribal college with campuses in Keshena and Green Bay, Wisconsin. He assumes the post on May 15, 2018.


Trebian will replace Interim President, Dr. Diana Morris. Morris will continue as the College’s Chief Academic Officer, a position she has held concurrent with the Presidency since the retirement in 2016 of CMN’s founder, Dr. Verna Fowler.


The announcement by the College’s Board of Trustees follows a 14-month national search that attracted candidates from across the country. Board Chairwoman Virginia Nuske calls Trebian “an excellent fit for the College and the communities we serve.”


She notes the value of his professional work with both traditional and online institutions of higher learning and in corporate and small business environments: “Higher education and the needs and interests of students are evolving quickly,” Nuske says. “The variety of experience Dr. Trebian brings with him is going to be a great asset to CMN and our students”.


The President-Elect holds a Doctor of Education degree in Educational Leadership and Master of Business Administration with a Technology Management emphasis from the University of Phoenix, and Master’s and Bachelor of Science degrees in Architecture from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. His scholarship and service activities have focused on faculty development, the improvement of student-faculty interaction, student retention, information and media technology, strategic planning and project management.


Trebian has held administrative and faculty positions at Cardinal Stritch University’s College of Business and Management and the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and teaching positions with the University of Phoenix and Navajo Technical College. Outside of higher education, he has worked in technology management in healthcare, family services manufacturing, aerospace engineering and architecture firms.


Trebian is a native of Alaska and a member of the Tlingit Tribe.
