Presidential Search Community Forum

  • 7 PM
  • CFA Auditorium

The Regents of Northern New Mexico College at their meeting on Thursday, February 25 approved an expansion of the presidential search plan to provide more community access to the process. The search for a new president for Northern began in late December with the approval of the presidential search plan. Even though the plan provided for a broadly diverse Community Advisory Group to the Regents and advisory groups from students, faculty, and staff, the Regents wanted to provide two additional opportunities for the broader community to be involved in the search process when they adopted a modification to the search plan. Two community forums were created.

The first Presidential Search Community Forum took place Wednesday, March 23 at 7:00 p.m. The following day, the Regents narrowed the pool of applicants to five final candidates (read more HERE).

The second Presidential Search Community Forum takes place at 7:00 p.m. Monday, April 18, at the Center for the Arts on the Northern campus. At this event the participants will have an opportunity to meet and hear from the five finalists for the president's position. The evening is planned so that the five presidential candidates can introduce themselves to the community, share their vision for Northern, and respond to questions from the audience. A reception for the five finalists, which will also be open to the public, will take place immediately following the presentations. This event is also open to the public and anyone interested in hearing from the candidates, one of whom will become the new leader of the college, is welcome to attend.
