The CCC District Governing Board has contracted with the Association of Community College Trustees (ACCT) to assist the District Governing Board in the search process for a new permanent president to replace President Dr. Leah Bornstein.
“We have a strong working relationship with staff at ACCT, and they will be able to provide support at a high level of excellence as the board conducts its search,” Garcia said.
ACCT’s Dr. Pamila Fisher will be the primary search consultant. The board, the President’s Cabinet and the College Council have all previously worked with Dr. Fisher, who knows CCC and its issues well. She is an experienced community college educator who has worked with nearly 70 colleges since retiring from her job as Chancellor of the Yosemite Community College District in California.
The recruitment period has officially started and will remain open until a target date of Aug. 5, 2015. It is currently anticipated that the community will be invited to public forums to meet the finalists in late August.
The board recently selected Veronica Hipolito, CCC Dean of Student Affairs, to act as interim president until the new permanent president has been selected.
ACCT is accepting nominations for the position. Nominations and inquiries should be directed to Dr. Pamila Fischer at email@example.com. For up-to-date information on the search, and for the application procedures, visit https://www.coconino.edu/ccc-president-office/presidential-search-process
