Community Update: National Search for SBCCD’s 15th Chancellor
The following message was sent to students, faculty and staff via email on July 7, 2020.
On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I would like to inform our SBCCD community that due to the ongoing disruptions caused by COVID-19 and their implications to community involvement, we are extending the timeline to identify our next chancellor.
The Board of Trustees will discuss a new recruitment timeline at the August 13 board meeting, and we will share it once it is finalized. At this meeting, we will also consider making updates to the composition of the Chancellor Search Committee.
Extending the search timeline will allow candidates to focus on their current institutions while simultaneously allowing SBCCD additional time to strategize and plan how to best move forward in the current challenging climate. All current candidates remain active, and we are keeping them updated on the extension of our search timeline.
Our candidate recruitment process remains active and ongoing.
We will continue providing our students, faculty, staff, and broader community essential updates via email and through our Chancellor Search web page.
If you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to reach out to our search consultants at the Association of Community College Trustees.
