Riverside Community College District
Riverside Community College District in Southern California seeks a “practical visionary” to lead one of the state’s top multi-college districts. RCCD serves 32,000 students and concentrates on the State’s community colleges’ Title 5 mission of stellar academic, transfer and career-technical education, effective partnerships with local K-12 districts and universities, and broad support from communities served by the Moreno Valley, Norco and Riverside City colleges.
The next chancellor will possess substantive academic, executive management and leadership skills, and will be expected to build upon RCCD’s strong foundations to lead the District and its colleges to new levels of achievement on all fronts- -academic, philanthropic, vocational education, and community enrichment. Reporting to a five-member, elected Board of Trustees, the successful candidate will be knowledgeable about California’s Student Success Initiative, California’s higher education funding climate, and state and federal government relations; adept in policy and fiscal matters, fundraising and labor relations; and committed to diversity, shared governance, and the effort to provide access to and success in the college experience for under-served populations.
In 2016, RCCD will celebrate Riverside City College’s centennial and the 25th anniversaries of Moreno Valley College and Norco College. The chancellor will play a critical role in securing external private and public funding and support to advance the colleges’ growth. These efforts include the upcoming Centennial Campaign for Excellence—a major gifts initiative with the RCCD Foundation— and potential future general obligation bond measures, statewide education bonds, and state, federal and private grants. In addition, the Chancellor will work with the college presidents to complete remaining projects in RCCD’s current Measure C capital construction bond program.
Recruitment is underway. Inquiries, nominations and applications are invited. Screening of applications begins January 15 and will continue until the position has been filled.
