Nashville State Community College presidential search committee selected, Public Forum and Committee meeting set for October 25th

Tennessee Board of Regents - TBRNashville, TN – A Search Advisory Committee has been appointed to lead the search for the next president of Nashville State Community College, and the committee will convene its first meeting October 25th, 2017 after a public forum to gather campus and community input.

The 19-member committee includes five members of the Tennessee Board of Regents, the college’s governing board, and representatives of the Nashville State faculty, staff, students and alumni and the region the college serves. It will be chaired by Board of Regents Member Joey Hatch, a Nashville State alumnus.

The public forum will be held from 9:00am to 10:00am October 25th in the Art Gallery on the first floor of the H Building at Nashville State’s main campus on White Bridge Road. The committee meeting will follow at 10:00am in Room S-118 of the Student Services Building. Both are open to the public.

The forum is to provide campus and community members to express their views about the search and qualities they want in the next president. The committee will then convene for its orientation meeting to discuss the timeline and procedures for reviewing candidates and selecting finalists.

The next president will succeed Dr. George Van Allen, who is retiring in December after serving as Nashville State’s fourth president for nearly 25 years.

The search committee will work with the executive search firm Greenwood/Asher & Associates to identify a broad range of highly qualified candidates from around the country. Application and nomination materials should be filed by November 13th, 2017.

The committee’s charge is to identify three to five finalists, who will be invited to the college for forums and interviews with students, faculty, staff, alumni and the public. Board of Regents Chancellor Flora W. Tydings will review input gathered from those visits, consult with the Advisory Committee and recommend a single candidate to the full Board of Regents, which appoints presidents of all its colleges. Under Tennessee law, names of applicants are confidential but the finalists are publicly announced and there is time for public review and comment prior to the chancellor’s and the board’s actions.

The tentative timeline calls for an initial review of candidates and prospects starting in late November, followed by an initial round of interviews in December, reference reviews in January and a second round of interviews in February. The goal is to have a new president selected by April and in office by July 1st.

The Board of Regents approved criteria for the position at its quarterly meeting in Memphis September 22nd. Full details and more information on the search are available on the TBR website at www.tbr.edu/hr/executivesearches/president-nscc-2017
