A Note from the Search Committee
Dear Norwich Community,
As the chair of the Presidential Search Committee, I wanted to update you on our progress with respect to our search schedule. Committee activities are well underway and our plan is to present at least two and not more than four highly qualified candidates to the Board of Trustees for interviews and final selection during the January 2020 trustee meeting in San Francisco.
The committee has received a significant number of highly qualified candidates. The 21-person search committee met on September 26th to review and discuss each candidate's cover letter and resume. Using the highly desirable attributes and experiences detailed in the position description, the committee has selected a number of candidates for an interview by the committee in the coming weeks. The committee is looking forward to meeting and interviewing each one as we move forward in our process. As chair, I am very pleased with the quality of the selected candidates.
Following the interviews, the committee will select no fewer than two and up to four final candidates. Each will be invited to campus in early to mid-November to meet the university community. During these university visits, faculty, staff, students and those interested will have an opportunity to meet the finalists and provide feedback on their candidacy.
I, together with the committee, feel it's a huge honor to have a role in the process of selecting our next university president. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call or email me.
Phil Soucy NU'73
