Maricopa Community Colleges governing board advances chancellor selection process

The Maricopa Community Colleges Governing Board has determined to move forward with one candidate, Dr. Maria Harper-Marinick, in its search process for the position of the district’s next chancellor, according to a press release. Dr. Harper-Marinick is currently serving as interim chancellor for the district.

“Dr. Harper-Marinick has more than 25 years of experience working with the Maricopa Community College District,” Alfredo Gutierrez, president of the governing board, said in the release. “While Ray Di Pasquale was an exceptional candidate, the consensus of the board is that Dr. Harper-Marinick has proven to be an extraordinary leader, having served as provost, executive vice chancellor and interim chancellor. As such, she will continue to the next phase of the selection process.”

The selection process continues with a series of internal interviews with executive leaders, the governing board, three forums (two of which the general public is invited and one specifically for students) and an engagement with members of the Maricopa Community Advisory Council.

Dates and times for the upcoming forums are posted on www.maricopa.edu/chancellor-search. Throughout the chancellor selection process, the governing board continues to invite public comments at www.maricopa.edu/chancellor-search.
