Presidential Search Committee

Two committees are engaged in the search for our next president. The Search Committee, comprised of trustees, faculty, staff, and students, will be responsible for developing the search plan, the timeline, and the pool of candidates to be considered. After consultation with all campus constituencies, the Search Committee will narrow the applicant pool to a few candidates and conduct off-campus interviews with each of them. Following the interviews, the Committee will recommend several candidates to the Selection Committee for further consideration.
