The college's presidential search is going well! We have received 12 applications and the Presidential Search Committee is reviewing them. There are already promising candidates. We are a long way from our Feb. 1 application deadline, so we are optimistic we will receive many more applications.
To get to this stage we employed Preston Pulliams of Gold Hill Associates to advise us on the search and to lead recruiting efforts. We formed a 17-person search committee comprising board of education members, staff, faculty, students, and community representatives. We created an advertisement and advertising brochure (found on our www.cgcc.edu website on the Presidential Search page: go to A-Z Index > Presidential Search). The brochure was carefully designed to sell both the college and the wonderful area in which we are so lucky to live. We think that will draw more applicants and help us compete with larger colleges that can pay larger salaries. In early November, three weeks ahead of target schedule, the advertisement was placed in six major national online search engines that specialize in academic administrative positions.
