Genesee Community College (GCC) is excited to announce the initiation of a nationwide search for the college's fifth president. The GCC Board of Trustees has enlisted the expertise of RH Perry, a distinguished national search firm specializing in higher education, to oversee and manage the presidential search process.
RH Perry will undertake a comprehensive pre-search study on campus from Oct. 17 - 18. This study is instrumental in shaping the presidential profile, which will outline the desired attributes, experiences, and credentials GCC seeks in its next president, while also addressing the potential opportunities and challenges on the horizon.
All members of the GCC community and stakeholders are cordially invited to participate in this crucial phase of the search.
To facilitate engagement and input from various stakeholders, GCC will host Community Open Sessions as follows:
- Tuesday, Oct. 17, from 3:30 - 4:15 p.m. at Conable Technology Building, Room T119
- Wednesday, Oct. 18, from 9 - 9:45 a.m. at Conable Technology Building, Room T119
In addition to the in-person open sessions, written feedback is welcomed through an online survey, accessible until Friday, October 20. This feedback will be invaluable in crafting the presidential profile.
"Genesee Community College's search for its next president is an exciting and pivotal moment for our institution. We believe that RH Perry's expertise, combined with the valuable input from our GCC community, will help us find the visionary leader who will guide us into a promising future," said Maureen Marshall, GCC Trustee and Search Committee Chair.
Recruitment of presidential candidates is scheduled to begin on Oct. 30, marking the next significant phase of the search process.
