President, Northeastern Junior College

The Colorado Community College System is seeking a proven, dynamic leader for the position of President of Northeastern Junior College. The successful candidate will be an innovative, charismatic and inspirational leader who is committed to education and who will have the outstanding opportunity to lead this successful college to new levels of excellence.

Northeastern Junior College is Colorado's largest residential two-year community college and is considered a premier two-year college. It is a comprehensive learning community that offers students a complete college experience that includes living on campus, nationally ranked men's and women's athletic teams and comprehensive academics in both career and technical programs and transfer degrees. As a 'junior' college, Northeastern functions and looks much like a small four year college, which makes it especially attractive to traditional age students. The college currently serves more than 4,000 learners each year in more than 80 programs of study. Of those, approximately 1,100 are traditional-age, degree seeking full-time students. The college has only had six presidents in its history and has enjoyed a 33% enrollment increase over the past three years.

Established in 1941, Northeastern is located 125 miles northeast of Denver in the city of Sterling, Colorado. This community of 13,500 serves as the county seat and as the primary trade center for the five counties which make up the northeastern corner of Colorado, which has a combined population of approximately 48,000. New and improved economic development efforts have led to positive growth in the area, including the development of one of the nation's largest wind farms. It is an attractive community with many small-town amenities and charms, but with easy access to big city culture less than two hours away. NJC's vision is to be Colorado's premier two-year college of choice through excellence in education and embraces a philosophy that the student is the most important person on campus. The college strives to provide the best possible educational, cultural, and social experiences within a positive and supportive learning environment.
