The Board of Trustees of Montgomery College (MC), located in Montgomery County, Maryland, seeks a dynamic, visionary president who can move the College forward in an uncommon time for higher education and in a transformational time for Montgomery County. Montgomery College is one of the leading community colleges in the country committed to furthering and broadening its vision of educational excellence, opportunity, and student success. Chartered in 1946, Montgomery College has served the community with distinction and achieved national prominence. The three campuses and two workforce centers of the College serve over 50,000 students each year in Montgomery County, a vibrant, diverse, and economically robust community of more than one million people with immigrants making up about one-third of the population. The county is adjacent to Washington, D.C., and 30 miles south of Baltimore. The presidency offers an exceptional opportunity to lead an institution with outstanding academic programs and student services, mission-driven faculty and staff, and over 50,000 students each year. The College is widely recognized for the quality and scope of its programs in the arts and humanities, business, engineering and science, developmental education, health sciences, many career areas, workforce development, and trades. Racially and culturally diverse, the College enrolls students from Montgomery County, the greater Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area, and more than 160 countries. In 2018, Montgomery College was named the most diverse community college in the continental United States by The Chronicle of Higher Education. The College is a Minority Serving Institution (MSI) designated as a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) and as an Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander-Serving Institution (AANAPISI).
