Allegheny community college searching for leader

PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Community College of Allegheny County plans to pay a consultant $60,000 to help find a new president.

CCAC trustees on Thursday approved two contracts with the Association of Community College Trustees, which will also provide an interim president for a separate fee.

CCAC President Alex Johnson is leaving at the end of the month to become president of Cuyahoga Community College in Cleveland. He’s been at Allegheny since 2008.

Trustees also voted to spend $85,000 on the second phase of a study to identify options for a new campus in the North Hills area. Officials say the search for a new campus reflects population growth in the northern part of Allegheny County and plans for more career programs.
