PCC Committee Looks for Input in Replacing District President
Sylvania – The Portland Community College board of directors is reaching out to students and the community in the search for a new district president.
President Preston Pulliams announced his July, 2013 retirement back in March.
Since then, the Board developed a 17 member advisory committee to replace Pulliams who is serving as the school’s fifth district president.
The committee is looking to define what ideal qualities the next district president should have.
Members are also giving students the opportunity to provide input during a series of public forums.
Board members also hired a familiar company to help fill the position, academic headhunter, Michael Viera, and his company “Community College Search Services.”
That company advised the college in the recent hiring of Jessica Howard as President of Southeast Center and the extended learning center campus.
The next forum takes place from 4:30 pm to 5:30 pm, Thursday, October 4, at Cascade campus’ Moriarty building auditorium.
Students who can’t make the forums can still participate by responding to online questionnaires.
