Modesto Junior College

The Process

 The Modesto Junior College President search is a confidential process. The selection committee, representing the College, District, and community at large, will begin reviewing applications on May 14, 2018.  The Board of Trustees will take final action on approving the hiring of the new president in a public meeting later in the spring, with the objective of filling the position mid-July 2018.

Applications will be accepted until the position is filled. To ensure consideration in the initial review by the committee, all application materials must be submitted electronically, through the District’s online application system, by midnight May 13, 2018, located at, or by clicking on the Apply Now button located at the top of the this page.  Application materials must contain all of the following components: 

  1. Cover letter: Individuals interested in this position will state in a (seven pages or less) letter of application specifically why they are interested in the position, how they meet the criteria and qualifications and how they would address the challenges and opportunities identified in this brochure.
  2. Resume: Applicants will also submit a current resume of professional experience, accomplishments, educational background and other pertinent information.
  3. References: The names and business and home telephone numbers of nine references: two supervisors, two subordinates (including one classified or support staff), two faculty members, one student and two business or community leaders. (Applicants from sectors other than higher education will submit comparable references.) References will not be contacted without the applicant’s permission. Candidates will be required to sign a release form to authorize reference checks. Employment history, degrees obtained and other certifications/accomplishments will also be verified.

 Submittals not containing all of the required documentation will be deemed incomplete. Due to the high level of importance placed on candidates’ presentation of qualifications and submittal, PPLConsultants is under no obligation to assess, comment or inform individuals as to the completeness of submittals. PPL Consultants will conduct the initial evaluation of submitted materials to determine the best overall match with the established criteria as outlined in this recruitment profile. Review of qualified individuals by the Search Committee will begin immediately with only the most highly qualified candidates invited to continue on in the selection process. 


The Search Committee is expected to interview the semi-final candidates May 29 and 30, 2018, and the finalists will be interviewed by the Chancellor and during the week of June 18, 2018. It is expected the President will join the District in mid-July 2018.
