An executive from a small Midwest college is poised to take over as second-in-command at Pima Community College.
Jerome Migler, a campus provost and vice president at a public college in Moorhead, Minn., is being recommended to fill PCC's provost position.
PCC's Governing Board is due to vote Wednesday on the hiring proposal. The provost job pays $175,000 a year.
Migler is a "seasoned administrator" who "is the right person for this position," said a news release quoting PCC's interim Chancellor Suzanne Miles.
Since 2006, Migler has been a campus provost at Minnesota State Community and Technical College's Moorhead campus, which has a total enrollment of 3,656 students, according to its website. He also serves as the school's executive vice president.
PCC says it serves more than 75,000 students annually as the eighth-largest community college in the country.
This isn't the first time Migler has been shopping for a new job.
Last year, he was one of five semifinalists interviewed for the president's post at another small college in Coon Rapids, Minn., according to that school's website.
For the PCC job, Migler faced off against four semifinalists who also work at smaller schools.
One, for example, works at an Ohio college with about 1,000 students, while another is from a New Jersey school with about 11,000 students.
A total of 49 people applied for the position. Migler holds a bachelor's degree in agriculture, a master's in agricultural education and a Ph.D. in education, his résumé said.
PCC also is searching for a new chancellor to replace Roy Flores, who recently resigned after eight current and former female employees accused him of misconduct.
