CHESTER and MIDLOTHIAN, Va. – The initial stages of the search process for John Tyler Community College’s (JTCC) new president are underway. As Dr. Marshall W. Smith prepares to retire as JTCC’s president in August 2013, the College and the Virginia Community College System will conduct a nationwide search for his replacement.
John Tyler invites the community to provide input into the selection of the next JTCC president by participating in a brief, web-based survey. A link to the survey can be found on the College’s homepage at http://www.jtcc.edu. Responses will become part of the material considered by the John Tyler Community College Board in the search process. The survey will be available through December 19, 2012.
John Tyler Community College is a two-year, public institution of higher education and is the fifth largest of the 23 community colleges in Virginia. With campuses in Chester and Midlothian and off-campus classrooms throughout the area, John Tyler offers quality and economical opportunities for students who want to earn a degree or certificate, transfer to a four-year college or university, train for the workforce, or switch careers. The College, which served more than 14,895 students during the 2011-12 academic year, offers 18 associate degrees, eight certificates, and 35 career studies certificates. The institution also serves 15,000 non-credit students and more than 1,000 companies and government agencies annually through the Community College Workforce Alliance. The College also is committed to sustainability. In July 2010, it received a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver Certification for Hamel Hall on its Midlothian Campus, becoming the first in the Virginia Community College System to receive such recognition. John Tyler Community College is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.
