Presidential Search

North Idaho College Board of Trustees announces search for the 10th president of NIC

The North Idaho College Board of Trustees has begun the search for the 10th president of NIC, following the announcement of President Joe Dunlap that he plans to retire in June of this year. The board has selected the Association of Community College Trustees (ACCT) to assist with the presidential search process. ACCT assisted NIC throughout its last presidential search, and they have conducted over 400 community college searches and bring a wealth of information to our process. The board has chosen Trustees Ken Howard and Ron Nilson to co-chair the Presidential Search Committee, which will be made up of NIC students, staff, and faculty, as well as community members.
Applications and nominations for the position of President of North Idaho College are currently being accepted until the position is filled.

The target date for applications is: Thursday, March 10, 2016.
