The Board of Trustees invites applications and nominations for the position of President of Pamlico Community College. The president serves as the chief executive officer and reports directly to a 12-member appointed board of trustees.

The College

Founded in 1962, the college is located in rural Pamlico County in Eastern North Carolina, nestled among the Neuse, Pamlico and Bay Rivers at the mouth of Pamlico Sound. Pamlico Community College serves approximately 500 curriculum and 2,000 non-credit students with the help of 66 full-time and 75 part-time employees. The college was re-accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges in 2013.

The college serves over thirteen thousand residents of Pamlico County in addition to residents in southern Beaufort County and Eastern Craven County. The college is the smallest in the state system or, as we like to say, “the 58th largest”! Among its many offerings are the new Human Services Technology program, Electrical Systems Technology with a smart 21st century classroom/lab, a renowned boatbuilding class and thriving continuing education and cultural enrichment classes and events. It is one of only two community colleges in the state offering a degree program in Electroneurodiagnostic Technology.

This is a unique opportunity to become president of a community college located in one of the fastest growing coastal areas of North Carolina. The area surrounding Pamlico Community College features a growing tourist industry with attractive nearby Atlantic Ocean beaches and waterfront communities. The area offers a comfortable lifestyle for an increasing number of retirees. This is a job for the person who loves people, the community college atmosphere and the challenges of helping people reach their fullest potential.

The College provides life-long educational opportunities for its diverse population and serves as a positive economic, social, and cultural catalyst in this county. The Ned Everett Delamar Center, in addition to housing Allied Health classrooms, is also home to a 650 seat auditorium/multipurpose facility. The county makes broad use of this facility, enhancing the role of the college in county life.

Pamlico County

With its miles and miles of shorelines along creeks, rivers, and the Pamlico Sound, pine and hardwood forests and abundant fresh seafood, the area surrounding the college provides residents and visitors with a superb quality of life. This setting provides an extensive natural resource base for agriculture, forestry, fishing, and recreation. A large portion of the county’s economic base is directly tied to farming, fishing, forestry and tourism, with the recreation and retirement industry becoming a more important part of the economy. Thus, the economic base of the county is very closely tied to the natural environment. Pamlico County is rich in cultural history highlighting the area’s bond with the sea. Pamlico County lies just east of New Bern, North Carolina’s Colonial Capital, and just north of Carteret County, home of the Crystal Coast beaches of the Atlantic Ocean.
