When we wrote last, the Vice Presidential for Academic Affairs Search Committee had chosen 10 candidates in whom the committee had particular interest and had selected for reference checking.
We have now completed the reference checking process, have shared and discussed this reference material, and have selected 6 as semi-finalists. These individuals have been invited to meet confidentially with the search committee in the middle of next month. All have accepted our invitation.
Upon completion of these interviews we will select 2 or 3 finalist candidates who will be invited to the campus for meetings with all members of the Marygrove community. These interviews will occur between March 25 and April 3. After meeting with the candidates you will have an opportunity to provide written input to members of the search committee. The committee will then meet to prepare its recommendation to Dr. Fike for action of selection and appointment.
The search remains on the schedule originally planned and we look forward to a successful conclusion. Should you have questions, please feel to contact me.
