LACCD Chancellor Solicited Public Input on the LAVC Presidential Search

LACCD held a public forum on the LAVC presidential search with Chancellor Rodriguez on February 8. Monarch Hall was filled with more than 75 students, faculty, staff and the public who came to hear about the search process for a permanent LAVC president, and participated in a discussion on the desirable qualities and characteristics for our new permanent leader. The District is putting together a search and interview committee, which will finalize the job posting and screen the candidates. The committee's finalists will be forwarded to the Chancellor, who will then forward a smaller group of final candidates to the LACCD Board of Trustees. The District hopes to select a new LAVC president on or about July 1, 2019.
