Presidential Search Update
The search for our next Juniata President has entered a new phase, as we have successfully recruited a robust candidate pool and begun the process of screening candidates. The result of our Spring and Summer recruiting initiatives is a pool of 72 candidates from a wide variety of backgrounds. The pool includes several current and former presidents, academic leaders with experience in the key institutional functions, and candidates with non-traditional leadership backgrounds seeking to apply their skills in an academic setting. We are pleased to have generated such a strong pool from which to choose.
The Search Committee has been reviewing candidate materials for the last month, and met September 7 to begin the screening process. We successfully reduced the pool to 16 candidates. The Committee will be checking references on these candidates over the next several weeks, and will meet again to further reduce the pool at the end of September. Those remaining in the process at that point will be interviewed by the full Committee in October. This will ultimately lead to our finalist candidates visiting campus in November. The Committee remains committed to maintain candidate confidentiality until the finalists for campus visits are identified.
