MASON CITY, Iowa – Round three of the search for a new college president for North Iowa Area Community College (NIACC) took place this morning
Steve Carignan, the associate dean at the University of Northern Iowa College of humanities arts and sciences, was introduced to faculty and staff and following his introduction, Carignan told everyone in attendance more about himself and his background.
“NIACC has values that align with mine,” Carignan said.
There was a question and answer part of the morning as well where faculty members from different departments could ask questions about what Carignan’s plans are for the future of NIACC.
“I am absolutely committed to high quality education,” Carignan said. “I think teaching is the most important thing higher education does, the other piece of it is accessibility, I think America cannot stand is we don’t educate our populous.
Two candidates were presented last week and there is one more applicant being presented tomorrow morning.
