This study explores the professional dimensions of being selected for and maintaining the position of a two-year college president. The exploration was based on a survey of 96 college presidents regarding what they perceived to be the factors contributing to their selection as president, the job challenges, and the future of the community college presidency. Researchers examined the data to rank those perceptions, skills, challenges, tasks, and strategies identified by college presidents as most important to their current positions. Results include: (1) communicator was perceived to be the most significant role of a president, followed by innovator and facilitator; (2) presidential challenges named were keeping pace with the increased costs of technology; increasing partnerships with industry; encouraging the maintenance of high-quality faculty; addressing issues of professional growth and training for administrators, faculty, and staff; obtaining financial resources; encouraging more articulation between high schools and their institutions; and identifying leadership potential from among the faculty and support staff; and (3) institutional vision and revitalization was rated as the most important presidential leadership dimension. This document poses a need for preparation programs and continuing education on the basic skill of communication, and questions how this can be further developed to be broad-based and inclusive.
