Presidential Search

A Presidential Opportunity

On behalf of the Northeast Community College Board of Governors, I would like to extend my appreciation to the faculty, staff and the general public for the feedback that was communicated recently as the search for the next president of Northeast Community College is now fully underway. The input that was shared during forums that were held at all of our campus and regional office locations and through an online survey will greatly assist the board and a search advisory committee as we recruit and evaluate high-caliber candidates for this most important position.

Pauly Group, which has decades of experience assisting colleges and universities in such endeavors, will advertise the position nationally and work with the board and search advisory committee to select candidates who possess the attributes that have been identified through the forums and the survey. Over the next few months, it is our desire to narrow the pool of candidates for further review.

I am pleased with work of the search advisory committee thus far. They have taken their roles seriously as we move through the process, which requires more "behind the scenes" work on their part at this time. Confidentiality is a necessary component of the process to ensure that candidates come forward with a willingness to apply while we protect their privacy. However, once finalist candidates are identified, in-person interviews will be conducted with the board and open public forums will be scheduled with a new president named this fall.

Additional details on the search process are available in the links on the right side of this page.

I am confident this search process will allow us to not only to be proud of our success in finding the right person to lead Northeast, but also be proud of the way it is achieved.

Steven Anderson, Chairperson
Northeast Community College Board of Governors
