Blue Mountain Community College, President (Pendleton, Oregon)

Blue Mountain Community CollegeABOUT THE COLLEGE

Blue Mountain Community College (BMCC) seeks a president familiar with, dedicated to, and appreciative of rural values, and committed to enhancing the educational, economic, and cultural quality of life of the residents of Eastern Oregon. Established in 1962, BMCC is a comprehensive learning environment with an annualized FTE of about 2,000, with a total headcount of approximately 7,400 students in credit and non-credit programs. BMCC offers 80 associate degree and certificate programs.

The College is proud of its connection to the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation through select on-site services, and has strong relationships with the 21 local school districts in its service area, with robust early college credit offerings. In addition, BMCC provides educational programming to three local correctional institutions and uses distance education learning modalities to serve residents of the region.

THE CULTURAL SETTING

BMCC’s main campus is located in Pendleton, Ore. (population 17,000), about 200 miles equidistant from Portland, Ore., Spokane, Wash., and Boise, Idaho. The nearest metropolitan area is about 65 miles away. BMCC serves residents in four center locations, as well as two additional locations in neighboring counties. The economy of eastern Oregon and the five-county service area (18,000 square miles) primarily depends on agriculture, but also has a growing technology industry with the opening of data centers along the Columbia River and the designation of a local Unmanned Aerial System test site in Pendleton.

BMCC’s constituents come from diverse walks of life, are proud of their small-town values, historical traditions, educational, cultural and recreational activities, and close-knit relationships with the College. BMCC expects its next president to genuinely engage, respect, and embrace the local populace and its culture, while simultaneously looking for ways to ensure future regional prosperity. This presidency is a high-visibility, community pillar position, and its incumbent is expected to participate in college activities, community events and support local establishments.
