The next president will enjoy leading a successful, financially stable, and well-respected community college in the SUNY system. GCC was founded in 1966 and is located in a rural part of Western New York with easy access to Rochester and Buffalo and near Lakes Erie and Ontario as well as the scenic Finger Lakes. The next president will embrace the opportunity to become part of this region, and be authentic, measured and strategic in developing a vision to successfully lead GCC into the future.

GCC serves a diverse student body with more than 7,000 credit and non-credit students annually by offering over 60 associate degrees, 16 certificates, and 12 micro-credential programs as well as non-credit courses. Genesee Community College is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education and was most recently reaffirmed in 2017.
