Gena Glickman, the president of the state’s largest community college, has been named one of four finalists to lead a community college on Long Island.

Glickman, 64, has been the president of Manchester Community College since 2008 and is seeking to lead Nassau Community College, Newsday reported Thursday.

It is unclear when a decision will be made, as Nassau has struggled to fill its vacant presidency for years amid a host of controversies, according to Inside Higher Ed.
