Presidential Search Update Progress Report #2




On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I would like to provide a brief update to let you know that we are on schedule with our national search to identify the next President of Essex County College (ECC). I would also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who participated in the online survey, as well as the public forums, through which participants had opportunities to discuss the qualities and qualifications ECC is seeking in our next president. Your feedback was insightful and valuable, and your contributions informed the development of the Presidential Profile.

On May 19, 2021, the Presidential Search Committee met for orientation and training, and to work on the draft Presidential Profile. On May 25, the Board of Trustees held a special meeting to review and approve the Presidential Profile.

The Presidential Profile is now finalized and can be found at the ECC presidential search webpage:

The target date for applications is August 25, 2021.

The Board of Trustees is committed to conducting an equitable, inclusive, and transparent national search process. If you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to reach out to our ACCT Search Consultants:
