The Halifax Community College Board of Trustees has begun its search for the institution’s next president.
The college said today the board is committed to conducting an equitable, inclusive, and transparent national search that will attract a strong and diverse pool of candidates from throughout North Carolina and the nation.
The board has selected the Association of Community College Trustees to assist with the presidential search process.
ACCT’s assistance will include providing support with the development of the presidential profile, recruiting highly competitive candidates, and working extensively with the board and search committee.
“ACCT has conducted over 750 community college searches and brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to our process,” the college said. “ACCT’s mission is to strengthen community college governance through education and advocacy.”
The HCC website will include information on all aspects of the search, both for the college community and candidates.
The presidential search webpage will include key information including the timeline, regular progress reports, information on how to apply, and additional information.
Electronic Survey — Presidential profile development
The entire community is invited and encouraged to participate in an electronic survey and share their thoughts about the qualities, characteristics, and qualifications the school is seeking for its next president, as well as the opportunities and challenges facing HCC in the years to come. The anonymous responses to the survey will be used in developing the draft presidential profile.

The college is seeking a new president following the death of Michael Elam in January.
