Letter to Bucks County Community College Stakeholders
12 October 2020
Since our last message in September, the Board of Trustees, the College Presidential Search Committee, and our search firm (Greenwood Asher) began the process of finalizing the Presidential Leadership Profile and recruitment strategy to identify, recruit, and vet potential candidates to become BCCC’s 5th president
I am pleased to report this critical phase of the presidential search is going very well. The Board of Trustees is particularly encouraged by the numerous thoughtful and insightful comments we have received from all of you on our presidential search webpage. BCCC’s outstanding reputation, led by our academic excellence and our student support and advisory programs, was affirmed by all our stakeholders. Each member of the Board of Trustees received your full individual comments to each question asked in our survey, providing stakeholder perspective and insight in each of our Board discussions and decisions concerning the current state of the College’s progress; the desired presidential skills, experiences and leadership qualities; and our goals, strategic themes, and ambitions for the future.
We all should be proud that BCCC’s brand is strong and our future is bright. In the coming weeks, our work will be to recruit and attract highly talented academic leaders who have held significant positions of leadership in their respective institutions.
Again, thank you for your participation in this vitally important process to ensure the future success of BCCC. Please follow our search process on our search webpage and feel free to continue sharing with us your ideas, comments, and thoughts. I also look forward to updating you later this fall on our progress.
Blake H. Eisenhart, Chair
BCCC Presidential Search Committee
