Public Survey On NECC Presidential Search Ends Friday

NORFOLK – Throughout the month of June the Northeast Nebraska Community College Board of Governors have been conducting their national search for the next president at NECC.

Pauly Group, a Springfield, Ill. organization has been assisting NECC in finding the next president. A community forum was held June 13 along with live viewing sites at Northeast’s three extended campuses in O’Neill, South Sioux City and West Point.

A brief online survey is still available until Friday, June 28 for those who were unable to attend the forums for internal and external stakeholders of the college. The board of governors is still seeking feedback from the public on the attributes most critical for the institution’s next president.

A new president will be named, tentatively, this fall.

The survey can be found by on the Northeast Community College website at or at Pauly Group’s website at
