The Medicine Hat College Board of Governors is committed to providing ongoing updates on the search for a new president to ensure college employees, students, and our communities remain informed throughout the process.
The committee has met with representatives from our search firm, Leaders International, and shortlisted the candidates from 35 to six. The next step for the selected candidates is lengthy, telephone interviews with Leaders International. Following the conclusion of those interviews, the selection committee will meet with Leaders International on Oct. 3, 2018 to determine which of the six candidates will be invited for face-to-face interviews. Another update will be shared after that meeting.
In addition, and in keeping with the guidelines established by MHC’s Board of Governors at the outset of our presidential search, we would like to share a change in representation on the selection committee which is now comprised of:
An extensive consultation process with Medicine Hat College stakeholders was recently conducted to help define the skills and experience they believe necessary for our next president. The results of the consultations helped create an opportunity profile that will be used in advertising the position.
The thoughtful and insightful comments were carefully considered and the board sincerely appreciates the time and effort of all respondents. The opportunity profile will be posted to several websites including Academica Careers, Colleges and Institutes Canada, and LinkedIn for 6 – 8 weeks at which point the shortlisting committee will begin to evaluate the applicants.

Please note, the firm contracted to facilitate the search process has changed its name. Davies Park is now called Leaders International Executive Search.
The board of governors is excited to begin working with the shortlisting committee on this important task. Thank you all for your support and contributions as we work towards a bright and healthy future for Medicine Hat College.
The Medicine Hat College Board of Governors is pleased to announce that a firm has been selected for the presidential search process. Davies Park is a Canadian executive search firm with 29 years of experience in recruiting top leadership talent for both public and private sectors.
Work on MHC’s presidential search will begin immediately. Davies Park expects the active search process to last approximately 16 weeks with an announcement of the successful candidate to follow in early Fall 2018.

To aid in the recruitment of a new president, a subcommittee was established– consisting of MHC Board Chair, Graham Kelly; non-academic member, Jade Kent; and public member, Davin Carter – to select an executive search firm. On March 20, the subcommittee posted a Request for Proposal for recruitment services for a president and CEO for Medicine Hat College. Proposals will be accepted until April 11, 2018 with the goal of evaluating and hiring an executive search firm by April 26, 2018.
The board will begin work with the search firm immediately upon awarding the contract, including defining the recruitment process, and establishing the selection committee. We are committed to making the process inclusive, transparent and effective and will continue to provide updates as they are available.
