Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (MnSCU) invites applications and nominations for president of Alexandria Technical and Community College (ATCC).
Alexandria Technical and Community College seeks a visionary leader to work with college faculty, staff, students and the community to realize its mission. The president has the opportunity to sustain and build upon a 52-year record of growth, innovation, and collaboration while leading the college to new levels of excellence and service.

A diverse program mix delivers applied learning in a friendly, supportive atmosphere with personal attention from faculty and staff. The college’s signature programs draw students from across the state of Minnesota and beyond. Many degrees transfer into Bachelor’s degrees.
ATCC’s rich history includes excellence in instruction and high academic expectations and performance. Additionally, numerous partnerships with local, state, national, and international business have led to significant business and industry financial support through the college’s foundation - awarding more than $380,000 in student scholarships each year.
Alexandria Technical and Community College is a member of the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system. With 24 two-year colleges and seven state universities, MnSCU is the largest provider of higher education in the state of Minnesota.

The successful candidate will be a strong leader and proponent of community and technical college missions, with a demonstrated commitment to student success.
