Presidential Search

This page is provided for reference only and may contain outdated information. On March 24, 2020 the Board of Governors made the decision to pause the presidential search. For more information please see the news release.

Community Input

In early November 2019, community members were invited to provide input into the presidential search process through an online survey and in-person presidential search forums.

The survey and forums were advertised through mass e-mails, social media, and on the University’s website. Over 300,000 opportunities were provided for the community to engage with this content. The Presidential Selection Committee was very encouraged to see that over 3000 members of the University community were engaged in this phase of the search process. The input provided will be used to inform the development of the position profile for the University’s next president. The profile will be posted publicly in the coming weeks.
