The Maricopa County Community College District (MCCCD) is conducting the next College President Search to replace Paradise Valley Community College’s (PVCC) President Pale Dale, who has announced his retirement effective later this summer 2022. The Paradise Valley Community College Search Committee and the Maricopa County Community College District invite applications and nominations for the position of President of Paradise Valley Community College.

“We are looking for a future-focused, agile and innovative leader who can help build our community college system to become an even greater asset to our state," said Dr. Steven R. Gonzales, MCCCD Interim Chancellor. “I would like to thank President Dale for his exceptional leadership and commitment to student success. He will be greatly missed at the Maricopa Community Colleges.”

The goal of the process is to announce a new president by early summer to begin July 01, 2022. MCCCD has hired consultants who will help identify and recruit talented candidates for the position, including those who might not be actively looking for a new position. The search committee will begin reviewing applications in March. To be fully considered for the position, applications must be submitted by March 08, 2022. 

The search committee is responsible for recommending finalists to the Interim Chancellor by April 2022. All final candidates will participate in open forums at Paradise Valley Community College on May 05, 2022. The selection process offers members of the community an opportunity for involvement. Once the Search Committee has identified finalists for the position, community members will be invited to the public forums to meet the finalists and provide feedback about the candidates.
