Carroll College

HELENA– The search is on for a new Carroll College president.

The college announced Monday that the Carroll Board of Trustees has formed a committee to begin looking for candidates. The 13-person committee is made up of faculty, staff, trustees, alumni and a current student. AGB Search will also help to facilitate and assist with the process.

Several forums and meetings were held in October to allow the community to express which qualities they’d like to see in a future president. Based on the input, the committee put together a position description for the ideal candidate.

“We are excited to find a leader for the college who is knowledgeable and passionate about our mission, and ready and energized for the challenges ahead,” said search committee chair, Tom Walsh.
