CNCC Presidential Search

CNCC Presidential Search

On July 30, 2020, Colorado Northwestern Community College (CNCC) President, Ron Granger, announced he will retire at the end of his term in July 2021, concluding a 40-year career in academia. The Colorado Community College System (CCCS) Chancellor has initiated a search for the next CNCC President.

CCCS is committed to a thorough and inclusive search process which will identify the best leader for CNCC. This effort will be led by Christina Cecil, the CCCS Chief Human Resources Officer. A Search Advisory Committee of CNCC stakeholders has been formed to assist in the selection process. 

In order to better define the qualifications and characteristics needed in the next president, CNCC faculty, staff, students and stakeholders are asked to complete the CNCC President Feedback survey. In addition to the feedback survey, Mrs. Cecil will be holding feedback sessions with various stakeholder groups. Feedback from the survey and meetings will be used to finalize a position profile that will be made available to prospective candidates. Summary feedback will also be shared with the CNCC Search Advisory Committee to help guide the selection process. 

The CNCC community can stay informed of the progress of this search through this webpage. Appropriate details about this search will be shared publicly. It is important for everyone to understand that candidates rely on the discretion of those involved in the search process and our guarantee of a confidential process.
