St. Cloud Technical & Community College — President

St. Cloud Technical & Community College (SCTCC) seeks a visionary leader to work with students, faculty, staff, and the community to provide quality career, technical, and transferable education.

With more than 90+ program options, SCTCC works closely with area employers and businesses to ensure the college offers education that works for its students and the companies they work for after graduation. The St. Cloud region is growing, and with that comes the need for a skilled workforce. Maintaining SCTCC’s relationships with businesses aligns with both college priorities and regional needs. In addition to the many technical and professional degrees offered, SCTCC is a comprehensive college that awards an associate in arts degree. A recent dedication to increase transfer and enrollment options in collaboration with St. Cloud State University puts SCTCC in a position for great growth over the next decade.

Located in Central Minnesota, SCTCC sits on the north end of St. Cloud, just a short walk from the banks of the Mississippi River. The St. Cloud region has a population of 189,000, which includes the adjacent communities of Sartell, Sauk Rapids, St. Augusta, St. Joseph, and Waite Park. As a regional hub in Central Minnesota, St. Cloud is home to many colleges and universities, as well as major health care providers and other large employers. SCTCC is an hour’s drive to the Twin Cities metro area and close to the many out-state lakes and parks that are distinct Minnesota icons.

SCTCC is a member of the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system. With 30 community and technical colleges and seven state universities, Minnesota State is the largest provider of higher education in the state of Minnesota. Minnesota State is committed to ensuring access to an extraordinary education for all Minnesotans; being the partner of choice to meet Minnesota’s workforce and community needs; and delivering to students, employers, communities, and taxpayers the highest value, most affordable higher education option.

Reporting to the chancellor, the president of SCTCC serves as chief executive officer responsible for leading the faculty and staff in fulfilling the college’s mission. The president serves on the system’s Leadership Council, which consists of the chancellor, the chancellor’s cabinet, and 30 college and university presidents. As a member of the Leadership Council, the president contributes to the overall direction of the nation’s fourth-largest system of higher education.

The successful candidate will be a strong leader and proponent of the community and technical mission, with demonstrated commitment to student success. While progressive responsibility in higher education is desirable, comparable experience in business, government, etc. will be considered. An earned doctorate is preferred but not required.
