Palomar College Announces President Search

San Marcos, CA – The Palomar Community College District Governing Board announced that the District has opened a national search for a permanent Superintendent/President. The Board has enlisted the assistance of the executive search consultants at the Association of Community College Trustees (ACCT) in promoting this vacancy.

In 2015, the Governing Board engaged in a search for a Superintendent/President, but after conducting interviews with candidates, decided to continue the process.

“This position is critical for the faculty, staff, students and community,” said Mark Evilsizer, Palomar Community College District Governing Board President. “This is one of the most important decisions the Governing Board undertakes and we know that we will find the right person to move the college forward.  Our goal is to have a new president in place for the fall semester.”

Candidates for the position are selected through a shared governance search committee comprised of faculty, staff, students, administrators, a governing board member, and a community representative.  The finalists will be interviewed by the Governing Board and will participate in campus forums that will be open to the public.

Adrian Gonzales remains as Interim Superintendent/President until the position is filled.
