Presidential Search Hero Image

The Board of Trustees is pleased to announce that five candidates were selected by the search committee to be finalists for the presidency of our college. RH Perry, search consultants, recruited a highly competitive pool of candidates from throughout the state, region, and nation. Everything that you do every day contributed to our ability to attract many very experienced candidates. Thanks to the members of the search committee who devoted numerous hours to ensure that all applicants received a thorough review.

The names of the candidates and the dates they will be on campus are listed below. Attached are photographs with the brief biographies for each of the candidates. The complete vitae will be posted on the NCC website in the presidential search section shortly.

Open forums will be held during the week of March 6th each day at 10:00am – 11:00am, 11:30am – 12:30pm, and 1:45pm – 2:45pm. You can attend whichever session best matches your schedule. After you attend a forum, please submit your feedback to the Board via RH Perry Survey Link by Sunday, March 12th. RH Perry will tabulate the results and share that information with the Board of Trustees.
