Job Description Summary
The Board of Trustees of Montgomery College (MC), located in
Montgomery County, Maryland, seeks a dynamic, visionary president
who can move the College forward in an uncommon time for higher
education and in a transformational time for Montgomery County.
Montgomery College is one of the leading community colleges in the
country committed to furthering and broadening its vision of
educational excellence, opportunity, and student success. Chartered
in 1946, Montgomery College has served the community with
distinction and achieved national prominence. The three campuses
and two workforce centers of the College serve over 50,000 students
each year in Montgomery County, a vibrant, diverse, and
economically robust community of more than one million people with
immigrants making up about one-third of the population. The county
is adjacent to Washington, D.C., and 30 miles south of Baltimore.
The presidency offers an exceptional opportunity to lead an
institution with outstanding academic programs and student
services, mission-driven faculty and staff, and over 50,000
students each year. The College is widely recognized for the
quality and scope of its programs in the arts and humanities,
business, engineering and science, developmental education, health
sciences, many career areas, workforce development, and trades.
Racially and culturally diverse, the College enrolls students from
Montgomery County, the greater Baltimore-Washington metropolitan
area, and more than 160 countries. In 2018, Montgomery College was
named the most diverse community college in the continental United
States by The Chronicle of Higher Education
. The College is
a Minority Serving Institution (MSI) designated as a Hispanic
Serving Institution (HSI) and as an Asian American and Native
American Pacific Islander-Serving Institution (AANAPISI).
The most competitive presidential candidates will be those
individuals who embrace the college’s spirit of innovation,
performance excellence, and radical inclusion. Candidates who have
a combination of education, training, and experience appropriate
for the position, including demonstrated expertise across topics
such as management of human capital, curriculum development,
fundraising, government relations and legislative processes,
federal and state regulations, accreditation, Board relations, and
budget and fiscal management. Prior experience with a collective
bargaining environment is desirable.
We welcome a disparate pool of candidates, including those not
necessarily considering a new position, those whose profiles are
out of the ordinary, those who show evidence as rising stars, those
who display exceptional experience and talent, as well as those
with outstanding track record in the community college environment.
