Colorado Mountain College Presidential Search

The publicly elected Colorado Mountain College Board of Trustees is conducting a search process for the next college president and chief executive officer.

Dr. Carrie Besnette Hauser, one of the most tenured higher education CEOs in Colorado and the longest serving president in Colorado Mountain College history, recently announced her decision to step down in August 2024 after nearly 11 years in the role.

Initial Internal Application Process

Reflecting CMC’s commitment to growing and developing leaders from within, it is the college’s standard practice to initially post staff positions internally. If an internal applicant is not identified, then the board will reconvene to determine next steps, including an external search.

The president’s position will be open for internal applicants for 10 days, starting March 27 and ending April 5. Trustees will meet soon thereafter to discuss applicants and determine next steps, with a goal of having a new president in the role by the start of the 2024 fall semester in August.
