Search for RCCC president down to six finalists

The Rowan-Cabarrus Community College board of trustees has chosen six finalists in the ongoing search for RCCC’s next president.
A presidential search committee narrowed the list of potential presidents from a pool of 43 applicants, a college press release said. Meeting three times between Feb. 19 and March 19, the committee chose 12 candidates and asked each to respond to a number of questions via video.
From the video presentations and responses, the committee selected the six finalists. RCCC did not name them.
RCCC trustees and consultant National Search and Education Associates of Cary are now gathering additional information on each finalist, including educational transcripts and reference checks. Arrangements also are being made for the candidates to visit the RCCC campuses, meet faculty and staff members and be interviewed by the trustees. The visits and interviews are planned for April 23-30.
Sometime before April 23, once reference checks are completed, the board will release the six candidate names and biographical information, the press release said. The college will post the information on its Web site.
“The visit and interview phase, of course, is an extremely important part of the overall search process,” said Pat Fulcher, RCCC trustee and chair of the core search committee. “After the interviews, the board will choose at least three of the six candidates and will submit their credentials to the North Carolina Community College System for its approval. After that, the process of hiring one of the candidates will begin.
“The board thanks the expanded search committee for its work in achieving the important milestone of selecting six well-qualified candidates,” Fulcher added.
RCCC President Richard Brownell plans to retire in June after leading the college for 30 years.
