Search for SVCC’s New President

 

Community Invited to Complete Survey in Search for SVCC’s New President

The preliminary stages of the process to secure a new president for Southside Virginia Community College has begun.  Dr. Al Roberts, current president, will retire effective July, 1, 2019 and the college and the Virginia Community College System will conduct a nationwide search for his replacement.

Betsy Sharrett, Chair of the SVCC Local Board, said, “On behalf of the SVCC Local Board, I would like to express our deep appreciation to Dr. Roberts for his devoted leadership.  He has provided five years of outstanding service to both out College and Southside Virginia.”

As one of the first prescribed steps the Board will identify the most pivotal challenges or opportunities that the College will face over the next three to five years.  These will be used as a guide in constructing a strategic framework and determine the leadership quality required of the next president. 

The entire community is urged to take an online survey as stakeholders in the process and the future of SVCC.  Please respond by December 11, 2018 at 5 p.m. to Link:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/8NXSCLW 

Sharrett noted, “While we are losing a much-respected leader, we are confident that we will be able to find a worthy successor to lead this great institution.”
