Message from President Roberts: Update on VP for Business & Admin Services position

Dear Campus Community,

At the end of spring quarter, I had shared with the College that no hire was selected from the initial applicant pool for the Vice President for Business & Administrative Services (VP-B&AS) position. Since that time, several late applications meeting minimum position qualifications have been received. In addition, there are now multiple other executive level Administrative Services position being recruited within the community and technical college system and there is a concern that waiting until fall quarter to review and interview the new applicants (as originally planned) may result in a loss of qualified candidates to other colleges.

With that mind, I have worked with the faculty and classified unions to identify a process that will meet our urgent need to staff the VP-B&AS as soon as possible. As a result of these conversations, I am moving forward to review and select a VP-B&AS for a 1 year temporary appointment through June 30, 2020 through review and analysis of applicants via zoom interviews early next week. Available screening committee members, direct reports to the position and executive team members will also have a chance to give feedback early next week on these applicants. Depending on the outcome of this recruitment process, the College will determine the best direction going forward and then communicate with the campus about next steps.

Thank you as always for your work and diligence in support of the College.

Cheryl Roberts, Ed.D.
