Colorado Northwestern Community College (CNCC) seeks an inclusive and innovative leader committed to student success with excellent interpersonal skills and strong business acumen to serve as its next president. The ideal candidate will be dedicated to the System’s commitment to equity in who it serves, employs, and how it measures its success and able to work effectively with CNCC’s two unique communities to create a unified vision for the college.

Reporting to the CCCS Chancellor, the CNCC President is the face of and provides leadership for the college, by establishing strategies and measurable goals to increase enrollment and ensure equity in student access and success at the college.

CNCC also partners with area high schools to offer concurrent enrollment programs. CNCC’s two main campuses are in Craig and Rangely, two communities located 90 miles apart in Northwestern Colorado.
