Regional Presidents Search


The Board of Regents for Higher Education (BOR) and the CT State Colleges and Universities (CSCU) are undertaking a major reorganization of Connecticut’s community college system. The BOR and CSCU plan to consolidate the 12, independently administered community colleges into a singly accredited institution by 2023, starting first with a regionalization of the campuses. This consolidated institution with 12 campuses statewide will provide credit and non-credit programs to more than 80,000 students in rural, suburban and urban communities. The BOR and CSCU seek leaders for this transformational change to position the campuses, their students and graduates, and Connecticut for a secure and vibrant future.

The primary role of the Regional President will be to guide the overall strategic direction of campuses in the region serving as a change agent for the new college structure and mission. Reporting to the CSCU President and serving on the President’s Leadership Team, the Regional President ensures that institutional operations and priorities are coordinated across all campuses in a consistent manner and establishes new ways of working effectively across campuses to deploy resources efficiently and strategically to meet regional and local needs in support of teaching and learning.
