Presidential Finalists to Interview on Campus April 1-3

Posted: March 21, 2014

Open campus interviews are planned April 1-3 for the three candidates recommended by the Presidential Search Committee to the Board of Trustees. The identities of the finalists will be announced Monday, March 31.

Students, faculty, staff and community leadership will have sessions with each candidate, and all will have the opportunity to give the trustees input through an online survey. The trustees, who will select the next president, are scheduled to meet Saturday, April 5, to discuss the candidates.

Each candidate will visit campus on a different day. On all three days, open faculty and staff sessions with candidate presentations will be held from 10-10:45 a.m.and 2-2:50 p.m. in the Moon Room of Dana Auditorium. A student session with candidate presentations will be held from 11-11:40 a.m. in Bauman Gallery East.

In addition, candidates will meet with Senior Staff, the Clerk of Faculty, Clerk’s Committee and Academic Division chairs, members of the Board of Visitors, alumni and community leadership, and trustees, as well as President Kent Chabotar. They will be given campus and Greensboro community tours in the afternoon the day before the interviews begin.

The 15-member Presidential Search Committee, chaired by trustee Carole Bruce, began its work last summer, assisted by the Witt/Kieffer executive search firm. On March 12 and 13, the committee interviewed 10 semifinalist candidates, from among whom the finalists were selected.
