Presidential Search Update - 12/1/22

Dear Campus Community,

I hope you are all doing well! On behalf of the Presidential Search Committee, I am pleased to report that the search for the College’s next President is progressing very well and remains on schedule.

Earlier this fall, your participation in the campus forums and completion of the stakeholder survey was critical in creating the Presidential Search Prospectus, which is an important tool we’ve used to solicit nominations and recruit candidates.

The search committee recently met and continued its multi-stage vetting process to identify candidates whose backgrounds and experiences align with the qualities and qualifications established in the Prospectus.  At our meeting, the search committee chose to advance a select group for confidential preliminary interviews.

The committee will meet again in December to conduct those interviews and to advance a smaller group of candidates for additional interviews and further vetting, which will take place in the new year.  I will continue to share periodic updates on behalf of the search committee.

I want to express my appreciation to the committee members for their diligence in this ongoing process. I also want to thank all of you for your continued support.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions at presidentialsearch@noctrl.edu.

Best wishes for a successful finish to the Fall Semester!


Dr. Kathy Birkett
Trustee, Chair of the Presidential Search Committee
