Erica Padilla-Chavez, President

Dear candidates and community,

Thank you for your interest in the Hartnell Community College District’s search for its next permanent Superintendent/President!

On Nov. 16, 2021, members of the District’s Governing Board formally began our work to identify and appoint an individual prepared to uphold, and raise, the standard of excellence that makes Hartnell College one of the most dynamic and innovative community colleges in all of California.

This person will exemplify our shared commitment to an overarching mission: ensuring the success of our diverse Salinas Valley students, whether they continue on to complete a four-year degree or immediately enter the workforce.

Our Board will provide regular public updates throughout our work to search for and appoint an outstanding new chief executive for Hartnell, starting with news of the position announcement, search timeline and search committee composition. We expect to provide the next update no later than January 2022.
