    Monterey Peninsula Community College District (MPCCD) Board of Trustees at their last meeting decided to continue their search for a new Superintendent/President.

    The college hosted finalist, Dr. Denise King for an open forum on the Monterey college campus on May 21, from 12:45 pm to 1:45 pm in Lecture Forum-103.  Unfortunately, finalist Dr. Arturo Reyes who has served as Superintendent/President of Mendocino College in Northern California since 2013 withdrew his application just days prior to his scheduled open forum which was to have taken place on May 20.

    While Dr. King has had a long and distinguished career in higher education, the Board of Trustees felt it necessary to continue their search in an effort to find the best match for the college and the entire college district.

    Dr. Loren Steck, a member of the college’s Board of Trustees heads up the search committee, which has been working diligently with the help of a consultant in the search for a new Superintendent/President. “This is perhaps the most important job we as trustees have. It is imperative that we not only find the right and best candidate for this important position, but that there is broad support and buy in by the entire college community. This is something we are taking very seriously and that is why we have decided to continue our search,” said Dr. Steck. 

    At this point the college will likely appoint a interim President/Superintendent in the coming weeks. Dr. Walt Tribley, continues to serve the district with distinction as current President/Superintendent and remains committed to the excellent delivery of higher education for the MPC’s students and the entire community the college serves.
