Leaders are in demand at community colleges across the nation. A study by the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) and the Association of Community College Trustees (ACCT) found that 75 percent of survey respondents anticipated retiring within 10 years, and that colleges also could expect significant turnover among senior administrators and faculty.
While progress and innovation are central themes at Cochise College, AACC says that “institutional transformation cannot take place without the development and continual improvement of a college’s leadership.”
