|Texas Southmost College Presidential Search|
With a history dating back to 1926, Texas Southmost College (TSC) offers an extraordinary opportunity for a new president to lead the redevelopment of the comprehensive community college needed to serve the Rio Grande Valley of Texas in the 21st Century.
The 83rd Texas Legislature provided for the termination of a 20-year University of Texas at Brownsville (UTB) - Texas Southmost College Agreement through which UTB had been the operating entity. The legislation provided for the termination of the Agreement on or before August 31, 2015. TSC reopened in fall, 2013 as a free-standing comprehensive community college. With accreditation in place, the college is poised for significant redevelopment to carry-out its mission.
TSC serves the eighth most populous metropolitan area in Texas. The campus is in Brownsville, the county seat of Cameron County. The community, known for its pro-business climate, is one of the least expensive places to live in the United States. Latest Census data show the population includes 89% Hispanic/Latino residents.
TSC has an All Funds budget of $41,121,271 during the current fiscal year. It is utilizing both General Obligation and Revenue Bond programs to build the college of the future. Enrollment topped 5,000 students in fall, 2016, demonstrating the readiness of the community to embrace the TSC of the future. This record enrollment will provide the foundation as an elected seven-member board of leading citizens charts the course of future development.
Screening of applications will begin on May 15, 2017. Applications will continue to be received until the position is filled. The process will be CONFIDENTIAL until the finalists are announced.
Applicants will complete a TSC ONLINE APPLICATION, attach a Vita/Résumé, a cover letter, a two-page letter to respond to the “Desirable Characteristics” displayed on the TSC website, and five (5) references.
