A Three-Year Search

Inside Higher Ed
June 17th, 2015


The search for a president at New York's Nassau Community College has been a struggle.
Since 2013, the institution with the largest single-campus enrollment campus in the state has seen a number of candidates, yet there's been little agreement among faculty, administrators and students on just who the next leader should be. The search has run into a couple of problems: faculty members say a breakdown in shared governance has contributed to the college's issues, and the State University of New York (SUNY) system in 2013 halted the search due to allegations of racial bias.
Two of the most recent presidential finalists -- one of whom is the college's acting president -- failed to garner the necessary number of votes from Nassau's Board of Trustees to proceed as the candidate. A candidate would need at least six affirmative votes from the 10-member board. So now campus administrators will renew their efforts to find a leader for the institution, which serves more than 23,000 students.
