The governing board of the Ohio Association of Community Colleges (OACC) invites nominations and applications for the position of president. As the primary spokesperson for Ohio’s community colleges, the president is charged with developing the academic and educational mission of the organization while representing and promoting the interests of the member institutions in the legislative process. The new president will be expected to assume office in July 2014 or as soon thereafter as feasible.
The OACC is a voluntary association of Ohio’s 23 community colleges. The Association was founded in 1993 as a single forum for advocacy, communication, recognition, trustee education and trustee-president cooperation. The OACC is the recognized voice of the community college movement in Ohio. The association’s offices are located in a spacious and modern office suite in downtown Columbus directly adjacent to the state house.
It is strongly preferred that the next president holds an advanced degree and has had direct and relevant experience in the community college sector as well as the legislative/governmental relations arena.
