Feedback from the listening sessions and survey will be utilized by the search committee to build a draft position description. The Board of Trustees will review and finalize the description at its June 23 meeting so that the r! ecruitment and advertisement process can begin. Campbell said the tentative timeline is to have the search committee narrow the field to 3 to 4 finalists by late August for on-campus interviews in mid-September. A new president is expected to be named by late October.
