I will soon meet with the search committee to issue their charge and discuss the search process. I am grateful for their time and service as we seek to fill this important leadership position. As we move further into the process, the search committee will be seeking input campus-wide from faculty, staff and students. We will communicate more about opportunities for participation in the search as it proceeds.
