LCC seeks public input in search for next President

EUGENE, Ore. — Lane Community College is inviting District residents and its partners to contribute to the search for a new college president. Multiple opportunities are available over the next month to provide input.  

Community members are encouraged to share their thoughts, ideas, and suggestions by using a survey on the college’s Presidential Search webpage. Feedback will be collected through 3 p.m. on Oct. 12.

Two community forums are also scheduled. The virtual events, to be held on Zoom, are scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 7 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Monday, Oct. 11 from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. Registration information is available on the Presidential Search webpage.

The LCC board and presidential search committee will use the feedback to create a presidential profile, an in-depth job announcement that outlines not only the desired qualifications and characteristics of candidates, but the institutional opportunities and challenges that interested candidates should be qualified and prepared to address.

The presidential search began in March 2021 when President Margaret Hamilton announced that she would retire in June 2022, after five years as Lane’s CEO and 30 years in higher education. A 15-member search committee has been formed, including representatives of the Board, faculty and classified staff unions, management, student body, foundation, K-12, University of Oregon, business, and community leaders.
