As the chairman of the Presidential Search Committee, I wanted to provide you a final update on the presidential search and the next steps in that process.

All four of the finalist candidates, Brigadier General Cindy Jebb, USA; Major General Cedric George, USAF (Ret.); Colonel Mark Anarumo, USAF and Major General William Rapp, USA (Ret.) each spent two days on campus during the first two weeks of November, 2019. During that time the university community had the opportunity to meet each finalist and learn more about their background, qualifications, and experiences and why they each desire to become Norwich’s 24th president. These campus visits gave the finalists the opportunity to learn more about Norwich University, should they be selected for the position.

Subsequent to each candidate’s visit, the university community had the opportunity to participate in a survey and to provide comments and input on each finalist. The results from the survey will be provided to the trustees in an unedited format in advance of the upcoming board meeting January 21-25, 2020 in San Francisco.

The Presidential Search Committee met for the final time on December 6 to summarize their observations on each candidate. These observations will be included in the committee’s final report, which will also be provided to the trustees prior to the January board meeting.

During the January meeting, the trustees will have the opportunity to meet and interview each of the four finalists. Each candidate will individually spend a half day with the full board, and attend an evening social function. On Saturday January 25, the board will meet to assess, discuss, and make the final decision on which of these candidates will be offered the opportunity to become our next president.

I speak for the entire 21-person Presidential Search Committee when I say that it has been a privilege and a true honor to participate in this very important search. I am proud of what the committee has accomplished and feel very strongly that the board of trustees has four outstanding finalists from which to choose.

Phil Soucy ’73
Chairman, Presidential Search Committee
