Confederation offers 58 full-time programs in 11 areas of study to a community of 7,200 combined full-time, part-time and international diverse student learners. Confederation College is committed to enabling Indigenous learners to experience success in both their learning journeys and their positive impact in First Nations communities and across the country.

The President will also continue to build on the College’s prominent leadership presence in the community through enhancing Indigenous programming, strategic enrolment management, technology development and partnerships with key stakeholders and partners.

The ideal candidate is a proven and successful senior leader with a track record of strategic and collaborative senior management experience within a complex, large and unionized environment, who preferably holds a graduate level degree. You have an in-depth understanding of how to navigate relationships with all three levels of government. You have a proven ability to successfully inspire, lead and collaborate with others to achieve strategic goals and a future vision. A superior communicator with strong engagement and listening skills, you are action-oriented and have a passion for the continued improvement of the student experience. The President must have excellent relationship building and interpersonal skills, and a deep commitment to diversity and inclusion and to Indigenous peoples.
