KCTCS Begins Presidential Search

As the Kentucky Community and Technical College System begins the search for its next president, the Board of Regents has announced the selection of a presidential search consultant and committee. The 19-member committee will be aided by the Association of Community College Trustees, a Washington, D.C., firm. Although a 19-member committee may seem excessive, Chair of the KCTCS Board of Regents and search committee co-chair P.G. Peeples says there's a good reason for the committee's size.

ACCT's job will be to develop the position and institutional profiles, recruit candidates, evaluate candidate application materials and provide reference checks. With 16 colleges and more than 70 campuses across Kentucky, Peeples says the job ahead is an important one.

Current and founding KCTCS President Michael B. McCall announced in November his plan to retire January 15, 2015. Peeples says the Board of Regents wants the transition to be as smooth as possible, because KCTCS is such a valuable resource.

ACCT has nearly 40 years of experience conducting national searches for multi-campus colleges and systems including the Louisiana Community and Technical College System, the Alabama Community College System and the Los Angeles Community College District.
