As Clackamas Community College launches the search for its next president, the college wants to first hear from the community.
In March, CCC President Joanne Truesdell announced her decision to retire her presidency effective July 2018. The CCC Board of Education is conducting a national search for the college's next leader.
"The Clackamas Community College Board of Education takes seriously its role in selecting its ninth president," CCC Board Chair Richard Oathes said. "We are committed to an open and inclusive process that allows for community involvement."
A series of public forums will be held May 8-11 on all three CCC campuses. Members of the community are invited to participate in facilitated discussions to help develop the profile of the next president. The college is seeking input on: challenges the next president will face, opportunities that will be available, and expectations of the next president. Refreshments will be served.
