Presidential Search Update
The search for our next Juniata President continues to be on schedule. As of July 27, we have received 37 complete sets of applicant materials, and have another 45 prospects in our candidate pipeline. We anticipate having between 50 and 60 applicants by our submission deadline of August 22, which is very encouraging.
The Presidential Search Committee met on July 28 and developed, in conjunction with our search consultant, a process for screening candidates. The Committee was instructed on the use of the confidential website which houses all applicant materials, and now has access to these materials. In order to ensure a successful search, the Committee is strongly committed to respecting the confidentiality of all candidate information.
The Committee will meet next on September 7, when it will screen the candidate pool down to 12-15 applicants. Reference checking will then take place, leading to reduction of the pool to 6-8 applicants on September 28. These candidates will then be interviewed on October 19-20 by the full Committee. The three finalists will be invited to campus for two days each in early November, and the Committee will meet on November 30 to finalize its recommendation to the Board of Trustees.
Any inquiries regarding the search should be directed to Mary White or Bud Wise.
