Presidential Search Update
The beginning of May marked the beginning of the active candidate recruitment phase for the Juniata College Presidential search. Notice of our search appeared prominently in the May 4, 2012, edition of The Chronicle of Higher Education, and on six websites dedicated to recruitment. In addition, approximately 2500 letters were sent to individuals at institutions of higher learning to solicit nominations and referrals. Our search consultant, Dr. R. Stanton Hales, will also be initiating personal contacts, drawing upon his broad network among academic leaders. Our intention is to cast a broad net to inform of our opening and encourage candidate interest.
Expressions of interest have already begun. We have committed that all candidates who submit credentials by August 22 will receive full consideration. The Search Committee will meet on July 28 to review the status of our candidates and to establish guidelines for candidate screening. Until then, we will be receiving candidate credentials at our dedicated email at JuniataPresident@academic-search.com. The Committee will meet again in early September to focus on candidate evaluation and screening.
Look for our next update in early August after our July 28th meeting.
