Presidential Search

  • ECC City CampusThe Search for ECC’s 11th President

    SUNY Erie Community College (ECC), a two-year educational institution with three campuses across Western New York, will seek nominations and applications for its 11th president. Current ECC President Jack Quinn will finish his ninth year at the college this Spring 2017 semester, and plans to leave his current role on June 30. Until then, he will continue to lead the Buffalo Niagara region’s second-largest college as it continues to prepare its students for sustainable careers.

    Since 1946, SUNY Erie Community College has met the needs of a diverse student body while contributing to the economic vitality of Western New York. As a member of the state’s SUNY system, ECC offers more than 100 degree and certificate programs designed to advance focused students forward. The College provides flexible, affordable and accessible educational programs in an accommodating academic environment for its more than 10,000 students, and is consistently ranked as one of the nation’s top Associate Degree and Certificate producers in publications like Community College Week Magazine.

    With courses affordable on any budget, ECC continues to be one of the most affordable colleges in the region, and the most popular for its high school seniors. The College hosts a thriving NJCAA athletic program, boasts a vibrant student community, provides a veteran-friendly environment for returning servicemen, and operates as a regional leader in workforce development (as part of the Buffalo and Erie County Workforce Development consortium). Transfer agreements with more than 35 four-year schools make it easy for graduates to transition forward, and the College’s workplace-focused curriculum is cultivated to prepare students for immediate employment opportunities in their field.

    ECC also operates its own Vehicle Technology Training Center and Green Building Technology Center; and will soon offer enhanced training opportunities within its recently constructed Center for Nanotechnology Studies and forthcoming STEM Building at North Campus, both accommodating for students eager to enter new industries in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.

    The College has an estimated $668 million annual impact on the Buffalo Niagara economy and fosters cooperative partnerships with over 300 local businesses. Such partnerships and seamless transfer opportunities have allowed alumni to enjoy 90% transfer/job placement rate once they graduate from ECC.
