Applications will be accepted through April 13

FORT PIERCE, FL—Aspen Prize-winning Indian River State College (IRSC), a comprehensive college serving some 30,000 students annually, is seeking applications/nominations for its next president. The new president will replace Dr. Edwin Massey, the longest-serving president in the Florida College System, who has served the institution with high distinction since 1973, including 31 years as president.

The IRSC Presidential search is now underway.

A leader in education and innovation, IRSC transforms lives by offering high quality, affordable and accessible education to the residents of Florida’s Indian River, Martin, Okeechobee and St. Lucie counties through traditional and online delivery. The College offers more than 100 programs leading to Bachelor’s degrees, Associate degrees, technical certificates and applied technology diplomas. This year, the College is celebrating its 60th anniversary.

AGB Search, an affiliate of the Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges, is conducting the search, working closely with the Presidential Search Committee, which is comprised of college trustees, foundation board members, community members, and IRSC faculty, staff, administration, and student representatives.

“Indian River State College has been most fortunate to benefit from the leadership of Dr. Ed Massey as our long serving President,” said Vicki Davis, Chair of the IRSC Presidential Search Committee. “His vision helped elevate IRSC to the Aspen Prize and a status as one of the nation’s top colleges, positioning the institution for future success. Our committee is confident there are leaders ready to build upon that legacy all while forging their own pathway of achievement.”

A Presidential Search Profile that includes candidate requirements and qualifications, along with College history and institutional opportunities, is posted on the Presidential Search pages at To assure full consideration, applicants should send a letter of interest, curriculum vitae and five professional references with email addresses and telephone numbers to no later than April 13, 2020.
