Presidential Search Update

Dear Saint Mary’s Community,

The Presidential Search Committee met on September 18 and we are writing again to update you on our progress. At this meeting, the Committee received a progress report on our candidate pool, and reviewed and adopted a candidate rating form that we will use in assessing written applications, ensuring all candidates are evaluated by a clear and common set of criteria based on the search profile. 

In the next couple of weeks, Search Committee members will be reviewing applicant files. In mid-October, we will reduce the pool of candidates to a smaller group who will be invited to a preliminary interview with the Search Committee, and whose references will be interviewed.  Between now and our next meeting, the Committee will continue to receive applications.

As we have done in the past, we encourage you to nominate individuals who might provide strong and effective Presidential leadership for Saint Mary’s. A number of you have taken advantage of this opportunity and we encourage others to be similarly involved. The search profile that describes the qualities we seek in our next President may be found here.

Nominations may be sent to our AGB Search Consultants:

Shannon McCambridge

Monica Burton

We are pleased with the quality of candidates who have indicated their interest in our search thus far and are confident we will be successful when the process is complete.

Thank you very much for your continuing interest and support. We will send our next update on the Committee’s work following our October meeting.
