President Search - Application Process

Search Committee

A Search Committee representing the Academic Senate, Classified Staff, Classified Managers, Administrators/Management, ASB/Students, the Foundation, and community will screen applications. In April, the Committee will select candidates who will be invited to an initial interview with the Committee in May. Prior to this interview, references may be called, but only with candidate's permission. From that interview, 3 to 5 unranked candidates will be forwarded as finalists to the the Board for their consideration. Finalists must agree to a full background and reference check and may be required to submit further materials. Finalists will participate in open forums and be interviewed by the Board of Trees who will make the final decision.
