Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (MnSCU) invites applications and nominations for president of Rochester Community and Technical College.
Rochester Community and Technical College (RCTC) seeks a visionary leader to work with college faculty, staff, students, and the community in an energetic pursuit of its mission. Established in 1915, RCTC is the largest higher education provider in the fastest-growing city in Minnesota, serving more than 8,000 students a year in credit courses and nearly 3,700 in non-credit continuing and workforce education programs. RCTC combines the best in liberal arts, technical, and life-long learning with more than 70 credit-based programs and over 130 credential options.
RCTC is located in Rochester, MN, home of the world-renowned Mayo Clinic, the largest private employer in the state. A newly funded public-private partnership initiative, Destination Medical Center (DMC), aimed at securing Rochester’s status as a global medical destination, is expected to result in over $6 billion in investments in Rochester over the next 20 years, creating over 30,000 new jobs, and doubling the population of the Rochester region. As the number one provider of trained workers to Mayo Clinic and the Rochester region, RCTC will be a critical partner in providing the education and training needed to meet employer demands.
Rochester Community and Technical College is a member of the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system. With 24 two-year colleges and seven state universities, MnSCU is the largest provider of higher education in the state of Minnesota. The president will lead the college; collaborate to achieve systemwide strategies, goals and objectives; and work to provide an opportunity for all Minnesotans to create a better future for themselves, for their families, and for their communities.
Reporting to the chancellor, the president of Rochester Community and Technical College serves as chief executive officer responsible for leading the faculty and staff in fulfilling the college’s mission. The president serves on the system’s leadership council, which consists of the chancellor, the chancellor’s cabinet, and the 31 college and university presidents.
