Wyoming Catholic College: President
Wyoming Catholic College, a unique institution of Catholic liberal arts education, seeks its next President to lead the institution into the coming years. Dr. Glenn Arbery has announced his intention to step down from the Presidency when his contract ends in the summer of 2024. Dr. Arbery has been at the College since 2013, first as a faculty member. He has served as President of the College since May 2016. The Board of Directors now seeks the person who will follow Dr. Arbery as President of the College.
Envisioned in 2004, founded in 2005, and established in Lander in 2007, Wyoming Catholic College graduated its first class of 34 on May 14, 2011. Wyoming Catholic College is a young institution in an active growth phase. Its next President will be charged with the formidable challenge of growing the College from its current enrollment of under 200 students while preserving and protecting its close-knit character and distinctive personality. Targeting a future enrollment of up to 400 students, the next President of WCC will require excellent fundraising skills.
Wyoming Catholic College does not and will not accept Federal funds. It is one of a limited number of Catholic colleges recommended by the Cardinal Newman Society. Interested parties can find their recommendation on the CNS website. The College seeks a solid visionary and capable fundraiser to usher it into this new era. Fidelity to the Philosophical Vision Statement of the College, written by the college founders, is a primary requirement.
The board-appointed Presidential Search Advisory Committee will begin reviewing applicants in the late Fall of 2022. The members of this Committee will conduct extensive phone interviews to narrow the applicant pool. They will invite a limited number of finalists to campus for in-person interviews with the Board of Directors and campus constituencies.
The Board desires to finalize the appointment by Fall 2023 and the new President to assume office by July 1, 2024.
Candidates should send a reflective letter of interest to the search committee, addressing how their background and qualifications match those of the presidential profile.
Inquiries should include:
- a current resume or curriculum vitae;
- and a list of five professional references, including phone numbers and job titles. (We will only contact references during the semi-finalist stage and with the advance permission of the candidate.)
Send materials as an email attachment in MS Word or PDF to: email@example.com.
Applications are being accepted on a rolling basis.
