Presidential Search Email 2-10-2023

The search committee working group met this morning with representatives from our executive search firm, WittKieffer. While WittKieffer will provide an update at the full search committee meeting on Thursday, there are currently 48 applicants for the presidential position at Adams State. Please see the attached agenda for Thursday, 6 pm, which will be a Zoom meeting.

We are still on track to review, as a group, the full slate of candidates at the March 17th meeting. This will also be a Zoom meeting in order to provide confidential feedback through an online polling feature.

First-round (Zoom) interviews will be held on March 30 & 31, in advance of the April 7th meeting of the Board of Trustees. We are holding April 18-21 for finalist on-campus interviews. As discussed previously, the committee is charged with delivering a final list of candidates for the Board’s review. The committee will debrief and provide feedback on the finalists on April 25. This will conclude the work of the committee. The Board will carefully review all of the feedback collected as they select the next president.

Confidential feedback is still encouraged:  We continue to ask members of the community to participate in the open survey to all university stakeholders.

Thanks, again, for your assistance in this very important search and Go Grizzlies!
