The search for a new president of Niagara County Community College is being extended after the college's trustees were unable to decide on hiring two finalists for the post.
The college said the trustees expect to hire a president in the spring of 2020.
“After extensive and thoughtful discussions and deliberation, the board has decided to extend the search," said William L. Ross, chairman of the board of trustees and a search committee member. "Once the academic year resumes in August, we will reconvene the current presidential search committee and continue the search process.”
William J. Murabito will continue to serve NCCC's interim president.
The trustees on May 16 re-interviewed finalists Stephen W. Dunnivant of Tallahassee Community College in Tallahassee, Fla., and Darrin Q. Rankin of Lone Star College System in Kingwood, Texas, but neither received enough support.
NCCC President James P. Klyczek resigned in April 2017 while under fire for remarks he reportedly made about a woman who was sexually assaulted on campus.
