Announcement from Board Chair Lorna Meyer Calas
President Stephen Beal announces his retirement after 25 years dedicated to growing and expanding CCA's campus, programs, and community.
Isaacson, Miller, a national executive search firm devoted to recruiting exceptional leaders for mission-driven organizations, will assist the search committee. The search will be led by Partners Karen Avery and David Bellshaw, with support from Associate Rafael Escobedo, Senior Search Coordinator Isabelle Atkinson, and Search Coordinator Julia Hochner.
Former Board Chair Diane Christensen is leading the search committee, along with two other board representatives of the Executive Committee (Calvin Wheeler and Kenneth Novack) and three additional board members representing the entire body of trustees (Suzanne Randolph, Abby Schnair, and Marv Tseu).
Two CCA staff members (Tricia Brand and Susan Avila) as well as two faculty members (TT Takemoto and Rachel Berger) will represent as part of the committee as well.
We’re holding an inclusive search, and the perspectives of all members of the CCA community are very important to its success. Throughout the process, students, faculty, and staff will be critical to shaping the future of the college and its leadership.
Campus-wide listening and feedback sessions with Isaacson, Miller are an open forum to discuss the challenges and opportunities of the role and share input into the job profile and search criteria. An online survey is also available to share feedback.
