Dear Windward Community College Faculty, Staff, Administrators, and Students:
The time has come to begin the search for a Chancellor for Windward Community College. After consultation, I have appointed Sarah Sur to assist me as search coordinator to select the most qualified and appropriate leader for Windward CC.
Sarah will work with the Chancellor Search Advisory Committee (CSAC) whose members represent campus and community constituencies while meeting gender and ethnic balance requirements. Recommendations for membership on the search committee have been solicited by the various governance groups on campus. We will then work with the CSAC to define the qualifications needed for the chancellor, advertise broadly, screen candidates, and narrow the field to finalists who will be invited to the campus for in-person interviews in Fall 2018. Information will be shared with you throughout the search process as appropriate.
The CSAC will eventually recommend candidates to me. I will make the selection subject to the approval of President David Lassner. The Board of Regents (BOR) has delegated the approval authority for the position to the President. Based on our timeline, the new chancellor should begin no later than January 2, 2019.
This is an exciting and important time for your College. I look forward to working with you to obtain the best possible leader to guide your College as you strive for excellence in the years to come.
Vice President for Community Colleges
