CNM Governing Board is beginning the search for a new college president.
This comes as the longest serving president for the community college, Katharine Winograd announces her plans to retire next year. Winograd has served as the president for 12 years and has worked for the college for more than 22 years.
Winograd is the longest-serving president in CNM’s 54-year-history. In her first year at the college, she helped lead a partnership with UNM that made it easier for students to transfer between the two colleges.
“CNM’s profile, its remarkable achievements and its national reputation for innovation have continued to grow each year under President Winograd, despite very challenging budget conditions throughout the majority of her presidency,” said CNM Governing Board Chair Pauline Garcia in a press release.
According to the Albuquerque Journal, she plans on staying until a new president is hired or until her contract is up on June 30 of 2020. Tuesday, the CNM board accepted her retirement plans.
