The Colorado Community College System (CCCS) has announced a nationwide search for the next Community College of Aurora (CCA) President. CCCS is committed to a thorough and inclusive search process, which will identify the best leader for CCA from a deep and diverse pool of candidates. To assist in this effort, CCCS has partnered with national executive search firm, Isaacson, Miller. Isaacson, Miller is a preeminent firm serving academia in the recruitment of presidents for some of the nation’s leading colleges and universities – including the current search for the next president at the Community College of Denver. The team of consultants will be led by Monroe “Bud” Moseley, partner.
To help define the professional experiences, traits and attributes needed in the next president, CCA and CCCS faculty, students, staff, alumnae/i, and other campus stakeholders’ will be asked to provide input. That input will be gathered through stakeholder conversations and a feedback survey.
With the information gleaned from stakeholder conversations and shared through the survey, the search advisory committee and consultants will formulate a position profile to serve as a guiding document during the recruitment and assessment process. The goal is to finalize the profile by early December. Isaacson, Miller will spend the late part of 2020 and early part of 2021 developing a candidate pool for the advisory search committee to review, interview and assess. The strongest candidates in that pool will then be invited to meet with a larger group of campus constituencies and it is our expectation to announce the final selection by May 2021.
The CCA community can stay informed about the progress of this search through this webpage. While appropriate details about this search will be shared publicly, it is important for everyone to understand that candidates rely on the discretion of the search committee and our guarantee of a confidential process.
Please submit search inquiries and candidate nominations directly to the Isaacson, Miller team through the firm’s website.
Questions regarding the search process can be directed to Christina Cecil, CCCS Chief Human Resources Officer, at 720.858.2426.
