Update on Presidential Search
The University's Presidential Search Committee (PSC) and search consultants from Storbeck/Pimentel & Associates continue to make progress in the search for Michigan Tech's next president. The PSC and the Board of Trustees appreciate the contributions from the University community as well as the continued interest in the search.
The update meetings, open to the University and local communities will continue, with the next meeting scheduled for 11 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 14 in Memorial Union Ballroom A2. The update meetings will now be live streamed for those unable to attend the meetings on campus. The Dec. 14 meeting can be accessed here.
The PSC and search consultants met Nov 17. Discussions included a recruitment progress update and a review of the resources utilized in the search process. PSC participation is critical in the search process.
While the PSC remains committed to a collaborative, transparent, inclusive and legally compliant process, it remains dilligent in protecting the confidentially of all applicants in order to attract the most qualified candidate pool possible. The Board of Trustees and the PSC will continue to follow best practices for executive search processes in the competitive higher education market.
The PSC will meet with the search consultants to plan the next phase in the search process at the Dec. 14 update meeting. The Focus Group will also meet on Dec. 14.
Through a national recruitment effort, a pool of candidates is being assembled. However, the University community and the public are welcome to submit nominations. That information can be shared directly and confidentially with the search consultants or through the Presidential Search website.
You are encouraged to share the prospect's name as well as any advice on the best way to approach the individual. The PSC is aware that the success of the search depends on the involvement of all members of the Michigan Tech Community. All names and information will be treated with full confidentiality.
Michigan Tech's Board of Trustees, the members of the Presidential Search Committee and the search consultants appreciate the interest and support from the entire University community. They wish you a safe and healthy holiday season.
