VPAA Search Update
I wanted to provide a quick update on the search for our new Vice President for Academic Affairs. The search advisory committee has met regularly over the last couple of months to discuss the qualities we seek in a VPAA at Truman. The job has been posted since mid-February, and Bill Funk and his associates have been busy recruiting applicants best prepared to be an effective chief academic officer at Truman. Today is the deadline for candidates to submit their materials for full consideration. The committee is meeting with me on Wednesday to select the semi-finalists. After the search firm completes its due diligence on those selected, we will ask the semi-finalists to meet with me and Mr. Funk at an off-campus location for an in-depth discussion about the position and Truman. After those meetings, we will identify the finalists to invite for on-campus interviews. We are preliminarily expecting those interviews to occur during the last two weeks of classes.
I want to once again thank the search advisory committee for all of their assistance in this important search. I will provide another update in the next couple of weeks.
