The District hired a search consultant firm to do a job search for the VCAS? We had the two very viable candidates for the job and now we’re going to employ the consultant firm once again to find more candidates? How much is that costing the Alamo Family? Why didn’t we select one of the initial candidates?
From the very start of the search for a new Vice Chancellor for Academic Success, our search consultant firm (Gold Hill) indicated that this was going to be an extremely difficult position to fill – and they were correct. Despite each of the candidate’s impressive records of achievement and credentialing, the District, based upon all of the feedback provided, has decided to extend this search. All candidates have been notified of this decision. Human Resources will once again post this position and the application window will be reopened. The search committee will continue with their work to identify suitable candidates for the larger collective to visit with.
On behalf of the entire committee, I want to thank everyone for their continued interest in, and support of, this process. Your feedback has been informative, instructive, and important.
