WNC requesting input for new president

Steve Ranson
A meeting to solicit input on a new Western Nevada College president takes place on Thursday.

An meeting that could set up a committee to hire the next Western Nevada College president is set for Thursday, not today as previously reported, in Carson City.

The meeting will be conducted on the Carson City campus’ Reynolds Building, room 102. Key times for the public to attend are 11:15-11:45 a.m. and 1:30-2:30 p.m..

The college is transmitting the meeting via interactive video to the Fallon campus, but Ginny Dugan, a member of local Restore Our College Campus Committee, said she would like to see as many ROCCC members as possible to attend the meeting in person. She understands this will be a ‘listening tour’ for people to offer their ideas of what the new WNC president should possess.

Regent Ron Knecht said the Nevada System of Higher Education’s chairman and the vice-chairman of the Board of Regents and the NSHE chancellor will conduct the meeting.

Among the items that may be discussed include the following:

Who and what groups should be represented on the public advisory committee (20+ people) that is advisory to and meets with the Regents’ six-member search committee.

What qualities are needed (and don’t want) in a new WNC president and what concerns you have in regard to finding a new permanent president.

What qualities are needed for an interim or acting president, including names of folks to consider (or not).
