Recently FRCC has hired a new College President to replace Andy Dorsey and the Larimer Campus will be hiring a new Vice President to replace Jean Runyon.


FRCC Larimer Campus will also be selecting a new Dean of Instruction.


In addition, the College is searching for a new Executive Director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion to replace Abenicio Rael in the college-wide office.


Tamara White, Vice President of Enrollment Services and Student Success will also be vacating her college-wide position by the end of the Spring 2022 semester.


In the past few weeks, a select group of presidential candidates has been touring the campuses and meeting with both faculty and staff as well as students.


“Meet-and-Greet” style open houses were organized throughout the campus system as well as student-led luncheons in which currently enrolled students were allowed the opportunity to eat with candidates and ask their own questions. While students have no direct deciding influence, their input is a valuable part of the process.


This type of turnover of administrative positions at institutions of higher learning is not unusual. According to Higher Education Publications, Inc. (HEP, inc.), a national publisher and researcher of educational trends, colleges and universities in this country experience some of the highest turnover rates of top-level positions when compared to other administrators in other fields.
