BC3 is partnering with Dabney S. Lancaster Community College and Convergent Nonprofit Solutions to present a new webinar series:
“So You Wanna Be a Community College President…”
The American Association of Community Colleges projects that over 50% of sitting presidents are expected to retire or “turn over” during the next five years. Further, the average tenure of the executive officer is less than four years.
A new wave of presidents is coming to the corner office, and if you want to be one of them, now is the time to prepare. New and aspiring Presidents are often faced with unique and daunting challenges and have few resources to access for answers, support, and guidance. We’re hoping to change that for you. This webinar series offers a unique opportunity to learn the ropes from two sitting Presidents and a former Vice President of Advancement.
On Tuesday, November 27th, I will be presenting the second installment of the series: “Understanding the Lifecycle of a Community College President” at 3:00 p.m.
Before going after that open presidency, take a moment to think about what it really means to be a community college president. What should you expect in those first few years? Understanding where your focus and energies should lie throughout each stage of your presidency is crucial to career longevity and your ability to truly make an impact on your community. During this webinar, we’ll discuss the internal elements you’ll need to tackle in your first four years, when to shift your strategy to focus on external publics and strategic media relations, and how to recognize when you’ve developed the successful governmental and funder relationships needed to pursue to groundbreaking initiatives.
