A Message from Amy Bosley, Vice President, Organizational Development and Human Resources

As shared earlier this week, on Wednesday, November 18, 2020, the Valencia College District Board of Trustees named the finalists for the Valencia College presidency.

Continuing the Search Discernment and Selection phase of our search process, each of the finalists will participate in limited on-site interviews, virtual interviews with our governing councils, Student Government Association leadership, and a panel of community leaders, as well as virtual town hall meetings with employees and students. For the full interview schedule, visit the Presidential Search Finalist Interview Schedule webpage.

We invite each of you to attend the following Employee Town Halls with our finalists. Please note that one of the four finalists, Shah Ardalan, has withdrawn from the search process.

If you miss one of the town halls, recordings will be available on the Presidential Search Finalist Interview Schedule webpage.

Feedback from the College community is a critical component of a successful search process, and your insights are needed about our finalist candidates. Please share your feedback on each finalist via the following Qualtrics survey. The survey will open on Tuesday, December 1, 2020, and close at 5 p.m. on Tuesday December 8, 2020, so the raw data can be presented to the Board of Trustees. 

If you’d like to take notes on each candidate before you input your feedback into the survey, you may find this PDF version of the survey helpful. Please note, however, that only feedback submitted via the Qualtrics survey will be reviewed.

To review the recordings of any past presidential search meetings, visit the Presidential Search Committee Meeting Schedule webpage.

Throughout the search process, feel free to share any questions or comments via the “Contact Us” button on the Presidential Search webpage. And, as always, if you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me directly at
