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 and minutes from the Army’s Fort Drum military installation. Jefferson serves a student body of nearly 4,000 traditional and adult learners and its campus is home to the Jefferson Higher Education Center and the renowned Center for Community Studies.  Jefferson is proud to be the cultural and educational hub of the community.

It is with great excitement and enthusiasm that we embark on the search for Jefferson’s sixth president. Consultants Jesse Thompson and Elizabeth Rocklin 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.
