Committee seeks community input on new BCCC president

November 01, 2005|BY A SUN REPORTER

Baltimore City Community College's board of trustees has appointed a 13-member search committee to help the board pick the college's next president, with three forums planned to solicit community input.

The board is seeking to replace Sylvester E. McKay, who resigned in May 2004 after a report by the nonprofit Abell Foundation criticized the college's academic performance. Richard M. Turner III has been serving as interim president since McKay's resignation.

On the search committee, trustees board member Kirsten Sandberg Caffrey will be chairwoman, and trustees board vice chairwoman Katrina Riddick will be vice chairwoman.

The three search forums - which are open to the public - are set for this month, including:

Nov. 9, from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., at the college's Liberty Campus Life Sciences Building, Room 120, 2901 Liberty Heights Ave. The forum is intended to focus mainly on faculty and staff.

Nov. 10, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., at the Enoch Pratt Free Library's central branch, 400 Cathedral St. The forum is intended to focus on comments from Baltimore's general community.

Nov. 14, from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., at the college's Liberty Campus Fine Arts Theater, 2901 Liberty Heights Ave. The forum is intended to focus on students.

The presidential search committee's next meeting is set for today, but it is not open to the public.
