MCC Guidelines for the Selection of a President
Miles Community College has a history and culture all its own. Understanding that distinctiveness, the strengths and challenges that the college experiences, and the conditions and environment in which it exists, is key to finding the individual uniquely qualified to be the next president. The board will hold forums for MCC employees, students and the community to help determine the qualities valued and expected of the new President.
For approximately six weeks, the President position will be open to candidates. This highly confidential process includes contacting individuals by telephone, letter and email to seek nominations of higher-education professionals, nonprofit executives, business professionals and government leaders whose experience, competence, style and character indicate they would be a good fit for Miles Community College.
About seven weeks into the search process, the search committee will begin to review the candidate pool and move the most highly qualified candidates forward in the search process. Using uniform, objective evaluation instruments, the committee will identify candidates who meet the criteria and qualifications of the position announcement.
The stages of review include:
While part of the search process is identifying the candidate the college needs and wants, an equally important part is making sure the top candidate wants to become a part of the history of Miles Community College. The Search Committee Chair facilitates the establishment and nurturance of a relationship between the institution and its leading candidates.

An important step in the presidential search process is the development of a Presidential Profile. Miles Community College held public "Listening Sessions" on Tuesday, August 13th and Wednesday August 14th. "Listening Sessions" were also held for the Faculty and Staff on August 26th. The student "Listening Session" is scheduled for September 16th.

The entire college community was encouraged to participate in these wide-ranging discussions about the qualities, characteristics, and qualifications we are seeking in the next President, as well as the opportunities and challenges facing Miles Community College in the years to come. Participants had the opportunity to ask questions about the presidential search process.
