The CSI Board of Trustees contracted with the Association of Community College Trustees to conduct a national search for qualified candidates beginning in November. A search committee representing both the college and community interests was formed to recommend the most qualified candidates to the CSI Board of Trustees.

The four candidates announced by the CSI Board of Trustees are Josh Baker, Martin Reimer, Dean Fisher and Dana Young.

Public forums to meet the candidates will be from 2 to 4 p.m. March 9 and 10 in the CSI Fine Arts Auditorium where participants can provide additional input. Each of the events will be live-streamed on the CSI website. The forum schedule will be as follows:

Dean Fisher

  • 2 p.m. March 9

Dana Young

  • 3 p.m. March 9

Joshua Baker

  • 2 p.m. March 10

Martin Reimer

  • 3 p.m. March 10

“We have been incredibly pleased with the large pool of potential candidates and the high caliber of the finalists who have surfaced during an extensive selection process,” CSI Board of Trustees Chairwoman Jan Mittleider said.

The final decision will be made by the Board of Trustees by the end of March.
