President Rochon to Retire
This past January IC’s president, Tom Rochon, announced that he will retire on July 1, 2017, after nine years in the role.
“I am proud of the progress and accomplishments achieved by the college over [my] tenure as president,” Rochon said at the time of his announcement. “I look forward to working with the college community over the next 18 months in a constructive and collaborative way, making progress on issues of diversity and inclusion, shared governance, and decision making.”
The board has assembled a search committee to help it to identify IC’s ninth president. The committee consists of representatives from key constituencies and includes three faculty members, two students (including one student trustee), two staff members (including one staff trustee), one administrator, and six board of trustee members (five of whom are alumni, one of whom is an alumni trustee).
The search itself is slated to begin in summer 2016, and the board intends to make the process as inclusive as possible by seeking input from faculty, students, staff, and alumni.
