Gateway to hold public listening sessions in search for new college president | Local News

KENOSHA NEWS STAFF

Gateway Technical College has announced plans for a series of public online listening sessions as part of the search for a new college president.

Gateway Technical College President and CEO Bryan Albrecht, who has overseen the college during a time of major changes, announced Jan. 20 that he will retire this fall.

Gateway serves more than 21,000 students and offers more than 70 career programs at campuses and centers in Kenosha, Racine and Walworth counties.

As part of the search for Albrecht’s successor, the public listening sessions will be held today, Friday, June 7 and June 8.

The Gateway Technical College Board of Trustees and members of the presidential search consulting firm of Greenwood/Asher & Associates are interested in learning the views about the challenges and opportunities at the college as well as the characteristics they should seek in a new president.

Input gained at the listening sessions will be used to develop the position specifications document that is used by the consultants with prospective candidates, to design interview questions and to help consultants learn more about Gateway.
