Each candidate will have approximately 20 minutes to make a presentation followed by questions to the candidate from the audience.

The names of the four finalists were forwarded to the SBCC District Board by a presidential search committee made up of college administrators, managers, faculty, classified staff, students, a representative for the Foundation for SBCC, and community members (SBCC Continuing Education Division and at-large).

The timeline calls for the SBCC District Board to name the new superintendent/president by the end of April with a start date of July 1, 2012.
