Finalists have been named for the vice president for instruction position at North Idaho College and the public is encouraged to participate in open forums with each candidate.
“The position of Vice President for Instruction is one of upmost importance here on campus,” said NIC President Joe Dunlap. “They have an immense responsibility to strategically lead and direct all our academic efforts—serving students, faculty and staff. We are anxious to spend some time getting to know those candidates coming to campus for interviews.”
The vice president for instruction position was vacated in March by Jay Lee, who accepted a job as president of Northeastern Junior College in Sterling, Colo.
Each finalist will participate in two open forums from 10 to 11 a.m. and again from 1 to 1:50 p.m. in the NIC Edminster Student Union Building Lake Coeur d’Alene Room on the following days:
Manuelita “Lita” Burns, Ph.D., dean of health professions and nursing at NIC on Tuesday, July 31
Robert “Rob” Lohrmeyer, Ph.D., dean of professional-technical programs at Lewis-Clark State College in Lewiston on Wednesday, Aug. 1
Rachel Anderson, Ph.D., dean of academic affairs at the College of the Redwoods in Eureka, Calif. on Monday, Aug. 6
NIC students, staff, faculty and the public are invited to attend the open forums. Dunlap emphasized that he reserves the right to invite other candidates in the future should it be deemed necessary.
