California's Community Colleges Struggle to Recruit and Retain President
Moser, Kate
Chronicle of Higher Education, v55 n13 pB7 Nov 2008
A year and half has passed since California's Riverside Community College district had a permanent chancellor. Two searches and two interim leaders later, the district's continuing quest for a permanent chancellor reflects a statewide problem of recruiting and retaining two-year-college executives. Smaller applicant pools and many vacant positions suggest that the risks of being a community-college leader in California can outweigh the rewards. The shortage of leaders could become a national problem, as many two-year college chiefs across the country are starting to retire at the same time. This article describes the shortage of leaders in California community colleges and the factors that cause it.
