Search for a New President at
Volunteer State Community College
 

The Tennessee Board of Regents is engaged in a search for a new president at Volunteer State Community College. The presidential search process is following the basic outlines of TBR searches for community college presidents (see presidential search FAQs ), although every search is somewhat different.

At its September 2011 meeting, the Tennessee Board of Regents approved criteria for the position of president, and advertisements subsequently were placed in October issues of the Chronicle of Higher Education and Diverse Issues in Higher Education.

The Presidential Search Advisory Committee has been appointed, and the first meeting will be held on the campus Dec. 15. The committee's charge is to identify three to five finalists for the position of president who will visit the campus for interviews. TBR Chancellor John Morgan will  then make a final selection for submission to the Tennessee Board of Regents for approval.
