Upon approval of the Higher Learning Commission, Mid-South Community College (MSCC) in West Memphis, Ark., will join the Arkansas State University System and become Arkansas State University Mid-South on July 1, 2015.
As a result of the impending retirement of the current President of MSCC, nominations and applications are being sought for the position of chancellor of ASU Mid-South. The chancellor will function as the chief executive officer of the institution and will report to the Arkansas State University System President.
With an enrollment that has topped 2,000 students, the college offers dynamic opportunities that include bachelor’s and graduate degree opportunities through diverse university partnerships, associate degrees, technical certificates, certificates of proficiency, professional certification training, developmental studies, business/industry training, and adult education/literacy. Known for its innovative academic and technical programs and depth in public and private partnerships, the institution’s model has catapulted to the forefront of workforce education. As an anchor institution for the Arkansas Delta Training and Education Consortium (ADTEC), the college leads by synthesizing faculty, curricula, equipment, and intellectual capital of its partners to provide skills training and certification to students based on the needs of local sector clusters in eastern Arkansas and western Tennessee.
The institution seeks a visionary, inclusive, creative, courageous, and progressive leader to further strengthen and develop the institution. The successful candidate will have the character and integrity deserving of the public trust, and a demonstrable commitment to the ideals of excellence and diversity. An earned doctorate or recognized terminal degree, a minimum of five years of executive leadership experience in the community college setting, and a strong understanding of technical education and workforce training are preferred.
Review of applications will begin April 15, 2015, and continue until the position is filled. The new chancellor will assume office on a date mutually agreed upon with the System President and Board of Trustees. Application materials (to include a letter of interest, a curriculum vitae, and the names, addresses, telephone numbers, and e-mail addresses of five references) must be electronically submitted (MS Word or Adobe PDF) via email@example.com
Under the provisions of the Arkansas Freedom of Information Act, applications are subject to public inspection.
