Presidential Candidate Assessment Form Available Online

By Chris van de Velde, Chair, Presidential Search Committee

On behalf of the Search Committee and the Board of Trustees, I want to thank the many members of the Arcadia community who participated in the interviews of the candidates for President.  Your dedication to the University was shown by your presence and participation.

I know that many of you are interested in what will happen next in the search process.  It is very important that the Board take the time necessary to collect all the information it needs, and evaluate this information in making its decision. Your continued patience will be appreciated as the process moves forward. A general timeline for the remainder of the search is outlined below, but it is subject to change.

The Search Committee will be meeting at the end of the week to review all of the information we have on each of the candidates—including the feedback received from the campus community. Please remember to submit your feedback forms by noon on Thursday so that it can be included. The Search Committee will submit its information to the Board of Trustees. (Complete the online Candidate Assessment Form.)

The Board will hold a special meeting this month to consider all of the information available on the candidates.  Given the importance of this decision, it will likely take time for the Trustees to reach a conclusion.  However, it is our intent that we will announce a decision to the Arcadia community in June.

Thank you again for your continued support and involvement in this process.
