CNCC Presidential Search

On July 30, 2020, Colorado Northwestern Community College (CNCC) President, Ron Granger, announced he will retire at the end of his term in July 2021, concluding a 40-year career in academia. The Colorado Community College System (CCCS) Chancellor has initiated a search for the next CNCC President.

CCCS is committed to a thorough and inclusive search process which will identify the best leader for CNCC. This effort will be led by Christina Cecil, the CCCS Chief Human Resources Officer. A Search Advisory Committee of CNCC stakeholders has been formed to assist in the selection process.  

CNCC faculty, staff, students and stakeholders were asked to provide feedback on the characteristics they would like to see in the next president. Through feedback surveys and information gathering sessions with various stakeholder groups, a CNCC President Position Profile was established. The CNCC Position Profile will serve as a guide for the CNCC Search Advisory Committee during the selection process. 

The CNCC community can stay informed of the progress of this search through this webpage. Appropriate details about this search will be shared publicly. It is important for everyone to understand that candidates rely on the discretion of those involved in the search process and our guarantee of a confidential process.
