Provost Search Update

Posted: 02/10/14

The beginning of January marked the active candidate recruitment phase for the Juniata College Provost search. Notice of search appeared this fall in the edition of the Chronicle of Higher Education and on 5 websites dedicated to diversity in recruitment. In addition approximately 3,ooo emails were sent to individuals at institutions of higher learning to solicit nominations and referrals. Our search consultants, Steve Leo and Vicki Henderson have been initiating personal contacts, drawing upon a broad network of academic leaders. Our intention is to cast a broad net to encourage candidate interest.

Expressions of interest are strong. To date we have received over 70 applications and we expect more. We are optimistic about the strong qualified applicant pool. The committee has worked diligently to create criteria with which to assess candidate materials. The reading and processing of applications is underway and our next meeting with Storbeck and Pimental on February 24th will define our refined list for the first round of interviews.

Look for our next update in early March.
