Presidential Search Committee Update – Ad Posted

September 19, 2016

Dear Campus Community:

The search for the next President of Truman State University is now open.  The ad has been placed in the following publications on the dates noted below:

  • The Chronicle of Higher Education – Sept. 16 and 23 (online for 60 days)
  • Women in Higher Education – online for 60 days
  • Diverse Issues in Higher Education – online for 60 days
  • The Hispanic Outlook in Higher Education – online for 60 days
  • Inside Higher Ed – online for 60 days

You may view the ad copy at the Presidential Search website:  http://www.truman.edu/presidential-search/.

An expanded description of the position and opportunity is provided in a President Leadership Statement.  The Statement includes the qualifications, characteristics, and values desired in the next President.  These attributes were identified from the information gathered during the consultant meetings with constituents on August 30–31.  The President Leadership Statement is also available at the Presidential Search website.

You may provide feedback about the search or nominate individuals for the President position by emailing krisha.creal@rwilliamfunk.com.  All individuals nominated will be contacted by the search consultants.

The Search Committee now enters a time of waiting.  Committee members will receive instructions for accessing applicant files in late October and will begin reviewing applications in November.  The Committee will identify semi-finalists before year end and will conduct interviews early in 2017 to identify the finalists.  The Stakeholder Group and Board of Governors will interview the finalists, and the Board of Governors plans to announce the next President of Truman State University by early March 2017.

You are encouraged to share your thoughts about the Presidential Search with the search consultant at the email noted above or with members of the Search Committee through their email address of presidentialsearch@truman.edu.  You may want to discuss the desired attributes of the next President, identify specific issues or concerns that need to be addressed by the next President, suggest interview questions, etc.  The Search Committee membership is posted at the Presidential Search website.

Sincerely,

Cheryl Cozette, Secretary of the Board of Governors
Debra Kerby, Dean of the School of Business
Co-Chairs of the Presidential Search Committee
