NMC Presidential Position Offered to Dr. Christa Adams (May 11, 2011)

In its meeting held on May 10, 2011, the Northern Marianas College Board of Regents voted to formally offer Dr. Christa Adams the position of NMC President.

Dr. Adams was one of the top three candidates advanced by the Presidential Search Committee led by Regent Andrew Orsini. However, she had withdrawn from the presidential search process before a formal offer was made because of a personal family issue.

Chairperson Lizama announced that the circumstances surrounding Dr. Adams’s family issue had changed and that she had requested to have her application reconsidered. During the Board meeting, the Regents agreed to her request. They also voted to authorize Chair Lizama to negotiate a contract within certain parameters.

“The Board of Regents has spent an extensive amount of time deliberating its options and the current development in the search process. We will continue to work hard and exhaust all efforts to ensure that the candidate we select to become the next president of the College is highly qualified and is the best fit for the institution,” said Chairman Lizama.
