The Isothermal Community College Board of Trustees has begun a search for a new president to replace Walter Dalton, who will retire in February 2021.

The first step for the trustees is to develop a profile for the position. This profile sets out the kind of person and types of skills the board would like to see in a new president.

To create the profile, the trustees are seeking input from employees, students, members of the community and other stakeholders. Once the profile is established a website will be published to share the details about the search including the application process.
