The Alamance Community College Board of Trustees is pleased to announce that we have begun the search to identify the next President of Alamance Community College. The Board of Trustees is committed to conducting an equitable, inclusive, and transparent national search that will attract a strong and diverse pool of candidates from throughout North Carolina and the nation. 

The Board of Trustees has selected the Association of Community College Trustees (ACCT) to assist with the Presidential search process.
