Presidential Search

  • Presidential Search

    SUNY Erie Community College has begun the process of searching for the 12th President in the College’s history with an anticipated start date of late summer of 2021. The State University of New York and the SUNY Erie Board of Trustees consider this process to be of the utmost importance to the ongoing success of the College.

    The Process

    The search for SUNY Erie’s next president will be co-chaired by College Trustees Mr. Len Lenihan and Ms. Danise Wilson. SUNY Erie's Board of Trustees will employ a national search firm yet to be named to assist in this endeavor. A search timeline will be established and announced once a search firm is identified.

    Once identified, the search firm will consult with members of the College community and other key stakeholders to gather their views about the qualities the College's next president should possess in order to move the institution forward. These conversations will be used to assist in the development of the position profile.

    A Presidential search committee will also be empaneled to assist in the search process. The search committee will be comprised of board members, students, and representatives from the College, as well as individuals from the private sector including business representatives and community volunteers, and elected officials.
