September 17, 2019: Public Forums: Executive Vice President & Provost Search

Following the search committee’s robust recruiting efforts and confidential interviews over the summer, I invite you to participate in public interviews in our search for the next Executive Vice President and Provost. In the coming weeks, each finalist will participate in a public forum at Northrop’s Best Buy Theater (4th floor) on the Twin Cities campus. Please mark your calendars:

Tuesday, September 24, 3:30-5 PM
Wednesday, October 2, 3:30-5 PM
Monday, October 7, 8-9:30 AM
Monday, October 7, 3:30-5 PM

Those unable to attend the forums in person can livestream them, or view forum recordings subsequently posted on the search website. We are also scheduling interviews for each candidate with numerous stakeholder groups.

I hope you will take time to review the candidate materials, attend or view the public forums, and provide feedback by completing the evaluation forms available at the forums and posted on the search website. Please consult the search website for the latest information. If you have questions, please reach out to Kate Stuckert at your convenience.

Finally, thank you to the members of the search committee, particularly co-chairs Professor and FCC Chair Amy Pittenger and Vice President for Research Chris Cramer, for their hard work and recommending an outstanding slate of candidates. The co-chairs will share more detailed information with you about the public forums, and the candidates, the day before each visit.
