As we begin 2019, BRTC is currently conducting a search for the next president to lead us into the future. With input from BRTC faculty, staff, administration, Board of Trustees and community leaders, a presidential profile was developed that will be utilized to ensure the final candidates are the best fit for BRTC leadership. BRTC has a strong reputation as a leader in Arkansas community colleges and we expect that to continue as we transition into new leadership.
Great effort was placed in developing a presidential search website where potential applicants can view information about all facets of BRTC and our community. We are currently accepting applications for president and have received several qualified applicants with plans to screen these applicants in late February and early March. Several of the same stakeholders who served to develop the presidential profile will also serve on the screening committee.
Interviews with the top candidates will be conducted in late March with campus visits in early April. Everyone will be invited and encouraged to meet the top candidates at the campus visits to provide input into the selection process. The Board of Trustees will take into consideration all of the input and make the final selection in April. The new president will be named and will take office July 1.
The BRTC Board of Trustees is making every attempt to make the selection of our next president with input from all concerns in a transparent and thorough manner. We all look forward to welcoming our next president who will lead us in fulfilling the mission and vision of BRTC.
BRTC Board of Trustees Chairman
