Great Bay Community College (GBCC) seeks a dynamic, entrepreneurial leader who is driven by student success, to work with internal and external college stakeholders. The President will realize student success goals by engaging with the community and ensuring college programs are innovative, meet community needs and have both educational and economic value.
Located in the dynamic business environment of the New Hampshire seacoast, GBCC supports student opportunity in alignment with the economic and workforce needs of the region and State. One of seven institutions that form the Community College System of New Hampshire, GBCC expands intellectual and economic opportunity by providing affordable higher education in an environment that embodies excellence, innovation, and collaboration. Accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), GBCC serves some 2100 adult and traditional-aged students as well as providing customized training for businesses in the region.
GBCC seeks candidates with a demonstrated ability to identify strategic goals, effectively communicate them, and translate them into action. The new president will foster innovation and serve as an effective agent of change. The successful candidate must be a compelling advocate for two-year education, as both a bridge to four-year education and as an end in and of itself. Candidates for the position should have a track record of success in community relations, assessment, finance, internal management, strategic planning, and fundraising. Outcomes focus and fluency in financial and student success metrics is a must for the role. A master's degree is required, a doctorate degree preferred, as is experience in the classroom. Prior experience in a collaborative union setting and in large, complex organizations will be considered strong assets.
