Edison Begins Presidential Search

Edison Community College’s Board of Trustees has selected Academic Search, Inc. as the firm to lead the College through its next presidential search. The national search firm will implement a proven search strategy in which they will guide Edison toward a successful hiring decision.

Built upon years of experience, Academic Search, Inc. will implement a search strategy, which will align the College to select a new president who will begin 2015 fiscal year. The entire strategy is comprised of five steps including, organizing the search, analyzing institutional needs, recruiting a strong and inclusive candidate pool, candidate evaluation and interviews, and facilitation of the appointment.

Most recently, consultants Eric W. Richtmyer and Jerry Israel were on campus to meet with internal and external stakeholders to gain insight about Edison and its distinctive attributes. From the information gathered in the meeting, the consultants were able to construct a profile for the ideal candidate.

The application period for the position of president is currently open through mid-January. As applications are submitted, the Presidential Search Committee of the Board of Trustees and the Advisory Stakeholder Committee will begin reviewing submissions.

The next step will include a further detailed review of the candidates in which the hiring committees involved will narrow their selection to 8-10 semifinalists. Interviews will then be conducted throughout February and on-campus interviews will take place in March. The Edison Board of Trustees will appoint the selected presidential candidate in April 2015.

The Presidential Search Committee of the Board of Trustees includes four current standing Board Members and the Advisory Stakeholder Committee consists of seventeen staff, faculty, students, and other key constituents.

For further information regarding the hiring process, contact Linda Peltier, Vice President of Strategic Human Resources at 937-778-7802 or
