Finalist Forums

The College President Search Advisory Committee has narrowed the pool of semi-finalist candidates to three finalists: Dr. Tod Burnett, Dr. Jeremy Brown, and Dr. Richard Durán. Over the weeks of March 11 and March 18, the college will hold forums open to the public and college community to solicit feedback about each of the finalists, and PCC's Board of Directors will conduct interviews with each candidate. Please read the candidate profiles and attend the candidate forums:
