The Community College of Allegheny County trustees could conclude a national presidential search as early as next week.

The board of trustees on Monday scheduled a special meeting for 5 p.m. Dec. 3. The meeting will convene immediately after a series of public forums at CCAC's four campuses featuring finalists vying to fill a vacancy in the president's office.

College spokeswoman Elizabeth Johnston said officials have not released the names of any of the finalists, nor have they published an agenda for the special meeting.

CCAC is in the final stages of a search that began in June to replace former president Alex Johnson, who left to become president of Cuyahoga Community College in Cleveland. Johnson's yearly salary at CCAC was $250,454.

Board chairwoman Amy Kuntz previously said CCAC received several dozen applications and began screening candidates in the fall.
