Here they are. Resumes and letters of interest are linked on that page along with the dates/times for their campus interviews.
We also found more information on one of the candidates, Dr. Leslie Navarro.
Before she was President of Morton College, she was the head librarian at Austin Community College, putting her in a very unique position to understand the importance of libraries in the community college. Her dissertation, The Learning College Library Concept: The Role of the Community College Library in a Learning College Environment, found that libraries were active participants in student learning by offering curriculum based workshops and individual instruction, thereby fostering a learning-centered environment.
In this article published in Diverse (Reflecting on Lessons for Community College Leaders), Navarro speaks about the importance of communication and building relationships between administration, faculty, staff, students, and the community.
She was a finalist for the Santa Fe Community College presidency in 2012. In case you missed it, here’s what happened to the candidate who won that job – Ana “Cha” Guzman was fired and took a $500,000 settlement.
We’ll be looking for more information on each candidate.
