Search for New CVTC President Underway

Dr. Cecilia Cervates, ACCT Search Consultant, is facilitating the search for Chippewa Valley Technical College’s (CVTC) next president. The search has begun following the retirement announcement of current president, Dr. Bruce Barker, who will remain in the post until July 2021.

CVTC’s community, students, and employees participated in 2 public forums on Friday, February 2021, to discuss the development of the presidential profile, which will be used for the position’s recruitment. The discussions covered topics such as ideal characteristics of the new president, in addition to the opportunities and challenges the College faces at present and in the future. These forums were supplemented by feedback to a public survey designed by ACCT and distributed by CVTC.
