Job Description



President

Wenatchee Valley College, a Hispanic-Serving Institution, invites applications and nominations for its next President. The college is looking for someone who will join a deeply passionate and experienced team that is committed to educational excellence, programmatic relevance, and the ability of all students to reach their goals. The next president will be an engaged community partner, a proven leader in the support and success of diverse student populations, and appreciative of an evolving region that is rich in culture and outdoor activities.

With an annual budget of $33 million, the college serves about 5,000 students per year. WVC students enjoy an average student to teacher ratio of 16:1. Faculty and staff are actively engaged with their colleagues and with students; this is a creative and welcoming space.

WVC offers 33 2-year degrees, four 4-year degrees, and 43 certificate programs. The college faculty are poets, musicians, and painters; scientists and technicians; teachers and medical professionals. Technical faculty have industry experience, and many participate in their professions alongside their teaching responsibilities. Students are provided a wealth of choices and opportunities for undergraduate research and other enhanced experiences.

Wenatchee Valley College serves a large three-county area that sits on the eastern slopes of the Cascade Mountains in a region of tremendous all-season outdoor activities including water sports, hiking, biking, skiing, rock climbing, and cultural opportunities including the western entertainment of Omak Stampede, art galleries, and the offerings of the Wenatchee Symphony and Performing Arts Center. The area is served by a regional airport and is within a 2 ½ hour drive of Seattle to the west and Spokane to the east.

The Columbia River cuts through the district and, together with the Wenatchee and Okanogan Rivers, defines much of the area's industry and lifestyle. With its hydroelectric facilities, the river provides some of the lowest-cost power in the nation; this has spawned a new and growing high tech industry in the region. The rivers together provide irrigation for one of the world's richest tree fruit industries, which gives Wenatchee its nickname as "Apple Capital of the World." The agricultural base also includes a growing wine industry.
