FCC Board of Trustees Announces Search for Next College President

09/16/2021

The Frederick Community College Board of Trustees announces a national search is underway for the next president of Frederick Community College (FCC). The Board plans to make its selection during the spring 2022 semester, and expects the new president to take office in July 2022.

“A president with strong vision and leadership is critical in the planning, operation, and success of all aspects of the College's programs and services," said Carolyn Kimberlin, vice chair of the Frederick Community College Board of Trustees and chair of the Presidential Search Committee. “We are looking forward to leading a collaborative search process to find the next visionary leader of our College.”

The Board is seeking a new president who will build on FCC’s track record of sustained success that has made it the learning destination for more than 200,000 students since 1957 and a valuable partner in building economic prosperity for the greater Frederick community. The ideal candidate is someone who demonstrates a collaborative and forward-thinking mindset, exceptional vision, an inclusive style, and extraordinarily positive energy.
The Board is meeting with faculty, staff, and students to gain broad input from the entire College community in developing the profile for the new president. The 13-member Presidential Search Committee is comprised of College constituents and community members.

To assist with the presidential search process, the Board of Trustees has hired Academic Search, a national search firm located in Washington, D.C. that specializes in higher education.
