Trustees seek Presidential Search Committee members

Nominations due Feb. 7

The Board of Trustees is accepting nominations for campus and community members to serve on the Presidential Search Committee, which will be chaired by Trustee Paul Farley. The board requests nominations be sent to the President’s Office by Feb. 7, so that it may confirm the committee appointments at its Feb. 13-14 meeting, to be held in Denver.

The committee will consist of 15 members, as follows:

  • Three trustees
  • Three faculty
  • Two exempt staff
  • Two classified staff
  • Two students
  • Two community leaders
  • One alumni/foundation representative

The Board invites the various stakeholder groups to nominate their respective representatives though whatever means they wish. Trustees Leroy Salazar, Kathy Rogers, Randy Wright, and Dr. Rob Benson will identify potential representatives of the community.

The search committee’s goal is to identify up to 12 finalists for the Board’s consideration by Jan. 1, 2015. The Board of Trustees, acting as the selection committee, will make the final decision regarding the appointment of a new President.

Further details on the committee and its task are available in Farley’s recent letter to campus.
