Message from SWCC Local Board Chair
Peggy Lowe

Retirement
On behalf of the Southwest Virginia Community College Board I would like to express our appreciation to Dr. J. Mark Estepp for his outstanding leadership at SWCC. As many of you know, Dr. Estepp will be retiring effective December 31, 2017. Therefore, the Virginia Community College System (VCCS) and SWCC Board are beginning the presidential search process, and part of that process involves seeking input.

Request for Your Input
To assist with the presidential search process, I am requesting SWCC stakeholders to participate in a presidential search survey. We are seeking input from SWCC students, faculty, staff, administrators, retirees, alumni, college and foundation board members, as well as from community leaders, and community members.
The information gathered from the survey will be utilized to form expectations for SWCC and the next president. This important step will also guide the VCCS in creating recruiting materials for the next step of the process. Please use this opportunity to share your vision of how Southwest Virginia Community College can meet the challenges and opportunities it faces.
The survey will be available 8:00 a.m., Wednesday, August 16 through 11:00 p.m., Sunday, August 20, 2017. All responses will be strictly anonymous. Click the link below to take the survey. For more information on the process, go to the Presidential Search Page, also linked below. Thank you in advance for taking time to contribute to this step of the presidential search process.

Search Process
In the coming months, the VCCS will conduct a national search for SWCC’s next president. A search committee will be appointed by the Chancellor, and both the chair and co-chair will be VCCS presidents. Other members will include representatives from VCCS colleges with expertise in a variety of areas, as well as three SWCC Board members. The committee’s primary responsibilities include: 1) reviewing, screening, and evaluating the credentials and application materials of potential candidates; 2) selecting candidates for interviews; 3) interviewing candidates; and 4) recommending semi-finalists for consideration.
A typical presidential search will involve the top several candidates spending time in Richmond for a formal interview and presentation and to meet with the Chancellor and his Cabinet. Three or four finalists will be selected to be vetted by an independent firm and certified by the Virginia State Board for Community Colleges. The finalists are then invited to SWCC to visit with various constituency groups.
