Full Job Description

The Renton Technical College Board of Trustees invites applications and nominations for the position of President. This is an exciting leadership opportunity at a nationally recognized technical college. Candidates should be passionate about serving a diverse study body, eliminating systemic inequities, and continuing the college's commitment to innovation that removes barriers for students. The President is the college's chief executive officer and reports to a five member Board of Trustees. The President will succeed Dr. Kevin McCarthy, who has provided distinguished leadership to the college since 2015 and will retire in June 2022.

The new president will lead one of the outstanding technical colleges in the country. Recent recognition has raised Renton Technical College’s profile even higher, including: $5 million unrestricted gift from MacKenzie Scott and Scott Jewett; Instructor Don Mee Choi receiving a MacArthur Foundation Fellowship; two ACC faculty award recipients; consistent recognition from the Aspen Institute; and designation as America’s No.1 college for adult learners by Washington Monthly. We are a vibrant, inclusive community that welcomes students from all backgrounds and empowers them for success.

Renton Technical College's Board of Trustees will consider educational background, professional experience, accomplishments, reputation, and character in selecting a new President. Successful candidates will possess an equity-focused mindset and the ability to lead institutional change that promotes the college's growth. Leading candidates will understand the important role of technical education in preparing learners for employment and meeting workforce needs. A strong record of achievement, including senior-level administrative experience in technical colleges, comprehensive community colleges, other post-secondary institutions, and/or business, industry, government, or nonprofit organizations is required. Earned Doctorate preferred; Master's required.
