Presidential Search >
Welcome to the Vaughn College's President Search Web Page
Earlier this year, Dr. John C. Fitzpatrick, the sixth president of Vaughn College, announced that he would retire in December 2014, after a long and distinguished career with Vaughn. During his 16-year tenure as president, he led the institution during a time of transformational change.
The College has embarked on the task of finding the right person to build on all that has been accomplished and take Vaughn College to the next level.
The Chairman of the Board of Trustees has formed a presidential search committee that includes representatives from various entities within the College, the community and the industries we serve. A comprehensive search process is currently taking place to identify several potential candidates for the position. To assist us, we have engaged the executive search firm Storbeck/Pimentel & Associates and developed this web page as part of that process.
By clicking on the links here, you will find a listing of committee members, Vaughn's strategic plan, a survey on desired presidential attributes, a position summary and advertisement, and other relevant information for the search. All correspondence, questions, application materials and nominations may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your interest in Vaughn College during this exciting time.

A Message from the Board of Trustees Chair
February 20, 2014
The Presidential Search Committee (five members of the board of trustees, the Dean of Academic Affairs, and the President of the Faculty Senate) is on schedule to place a slate of extremely well qualified candidates before the Vaughn College Board of Trustees by mid-March. Over 90 candidates have applied, 30 have been intensively reviewed and 12 were selected for the first interview by the committee. Several important steps remain in the process of selecting final candidates, and we will continue to keep the Vaughn community informed as this process moves toward the selection of a new president. The entire Board of Trustees is aware of the importance of this task and is committed to an open and transparent process.
