I would like to update you as to the progress of the search for the vice president for finance and administration. The firm, Educational Management Network, a division of Witt/Kieffer, has been contracted to conduct the search.
Gary Posner and Jennifer Koropchak are the search coordinators. They have made two visits to St. Thomas, meeting with a number of faculty, staff, members of the search committee and board of trustees members, among others. The result of those visits is a detailed Position Specification. This is a document that will be sent to any person who expresses an interest in the position.
The position announcement has been published in the Chronicle of Higher Education and other appropriate journals and newsletters. In addition, the search consultants are actively recruiting nominations and applications. The deadline for application is Friday, Feb. 18, 2000. We anticipate inviting final candidates to campus for interviews in late March or early April. These on-campus interviews will include open sessions that you may attend.
Regular updates regarding this search will be available through the Bulletin Today.
