FOR SMC PRESIDENT FINALISTS NOV. 14-16
Santa Monica College announced today (Nov. 9) that it has scheduled public forums for each of the finalists for the college president position from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Monday through Wednesday, Nov. 14-16.
Appearing Monday will be Dr. Deborah Blue, vice president of policy and research for the Accrediting Commission for Community & Junior Colleges (ACCJC) in Novato; Tuesday will feature Dr. Chui Tsang, president of San Jose City College; and on Wednesday it will be Dr. G. Jeremiah Ryan, president of Raritan Valley Community College in New Jersey.
Each of the finalists will spend a full day on campus to appear at the forums and for interviews with the Board.
The forums will be moderated by Dr. Narcisa Polonio, vice president of the national Association of Community College Trustees, which has served as SMC’s presidential search consultant. The forum will include opening and closing statements by the candidates and a Question-&-Answer session, with questions prepared in advance by representatives of each of SMC’s five constituency groups – students, faculty, classified (non-teaching) employees, managers and community members.
The forums will also be aired, back-to-back,
from noon to 6 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 16 and from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday,
Nov. 17 on SMC-TV Channel 28 (available to Adelphia subscribers in Santa
Monica). Videotapes of the forums will also be available in the SMC Library
and Malibu Public Library.
Last week, the SMC Presidential Search Committee – made up of SMC employees, students and Santa Monica community members – forwarded to the Board of Trustees the names of the three candidates for consideration as finalists for the college president position. The recommendations came after an exhaustive nationwide search.
A new president could be named as early
as Dec. 5.
