The search for a permanent president of City College has been discontinued, district Chancellor Constance Carroll announced April 4.
The search process will continue during the fall semester of this year, with the goal of having a replacement selected by July 1, 2014, or shortly after.
“Given the many needs of the college and the significant role it plays in so many students’ lives, it is most important for us to select the best president possible and not make a mistake in that determination. This outcome is disappointing for everyone involved, including me, but it is the correct decision to make, ” Carroll, chancellor of the San Diego Community College district, said in a campus-wide email announcement.
Currently, the exact reason why the search has been discontinued is not available. School officials have decided not to release any more information at this time. Until the search resumes, an interim president will be appointed for the 2013-14 academic year.
“Employing an interim president will ensure continuity of attention to the needs of and support for the college during the coming year,” Carroll said in the announcement.
