Executive Vice President of Academic Affairs
After 17 years of valued service, Johnson County Community College's chief academic officer is retiring. Therefore, the college is seeking a new executive vice president of academic affairs.
Johnson County Community College in Overland Park, Kansas, is the largest institution of undergraduate education in the state and is a first-choice destination for both students and the community, serving approximately 21,000 credit students. At JCCC, students have a rich educational experience. Current initiatives include projects focused on student success, engagement and completion, while a new building to house a culinary academy is under construction.
JCCC also wins many awards and honors. JCCC has been recognized as one of the best colleges in the nation to work for, according to a survey conducted by The Chronicle of Higher Education. Over the years, the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and the Council for Advancement and Support of Education have named several JCCC professors as Kansas Professor of the Year.
JCCC has strong community support. In January 2012, the Overland Park Chamber of Commerce Foundation study decisively proved the community's support of JCCC, when 93 percent of the participants said they had a favorable opinion of JCCC.
