Rock Valley College is searching for its next President. A Presidential Search Committee has been formed following an announcement by President Jack Becherer that he intends to step down on June 30, 2014. The executive search firm of Isaacson, Miller has been selected to assist in this process. A key component of the search, particularly at the early stages, will be to gather valuable input from the RVC community and stakeholders. We encourage all faculty, staff, students, and community members to send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org to nominate a candidate, suggest a potential source of information, or provide thoughtful input to assist in the process. You may also click here for a Nomination and Suggestions form or here to provide general insight into the search. As the search continues, you are encouraged to visit this site often for more information and updates.
The full search committee met on September 17 from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. It was a productive conversation that mapped the way forward in the search process and discussed the needs of Rock Valley College and the ideal traits and experiences sought in a new president. Based on these conversations, and others with various constituencies in and outside of the College, the search firm and the search committee has drafted a Presidential Profile to represent the challenges and opportunities the next president will meet. The profile, posted here, will be distributed broadly to potential candidates and sources as this search proceeds.
