Austin Community College President and CEO Stephen Kinslow is retiring after 34 years serving the school.
The community college's top executive is stepping down after his contract expires June 2011, according to an announcement Monday. Kinslow has filled the role for six years, previously working as interim chief, assistant dean and in other positions.
He was originally appointed to the position temporarily in 2005 after former president Robert Aguero abruptly left, having served only nine months with the school. ACC's leaders appointed Kinslow to help the college stabilize before searching for a new president, but instead renewed his contract at the end of the two years.
The college is now beginning a nationwide search for his replacement, possibly hiring a search firm to lead the hiring.
Prior to working in Austin, Kinslow, 60, taught public school in Big Spring, Texas and for the Dallas County Community College District. He earned his doctorate from the University of Texas, his master's from Southern Methodist University and his bachelor's from the University of Texas at Arlington.
He currently serves on the board of directors for the Austin and Round Rock Chambers of Commerce, the Leadership Round Rock board, the Texas Association of Community Colleges board of directors, the ACC Center for Public Policy and Political Studies, the E3 Alliance board and as vice chair of the Texas Campus Compact.
