A Message from the Search Chair

Welcome and thank you for your interest in the Presidential search process for Jefferson Community College.

Jefferson Community College was chartered in 1961 and is one of 30 community colleges in the State University of New York (SUNY) System. Sponsored by Jefferson County, it also serves parts of Oswego, Lewis and St. Lawrence Counties. The campus is located in Watertown, NY, in the heart of New York’s Thousand Islands region, less than one hour from the Adirondack Park and just minutes from the Army’s Fort Drum military installation. Jefferson serves a student body of nearly 2,500 traditional and adult learners and offers more than 50 associate degrees, certificates and microcredentials for career preparation or transfer along with local access to bachelor’s and advanced degrees through partner institutions. Home to the renowned Center for Community Studies, Jefferson is proud to be the educational and cultural hub of the community.

It is with great excitement and enthusiasm that we embark on the search for Jefferson’s seventh president. Consultants John Hutchinson, Thomas DaRin and Paul Doeg of R.H. Perry & Associates will assist the Search Committee. We are committed to an open process and we encourage input, comments, and suggestions from all stakeholders and friends of Jefferson Community College. 

Thank you again for your interest in Jefferson Community College and its Presidential search process. This is a very exciting time for the future of this community’s college. Please feel free to contact us at any time.
