Presidential Search Update

Dear Saint Mary’s Community,

The purpose of this communication is to provide an update from the Presidential Search Committee as we enter the final phase of our collective efforts to recruit the next President of Saint Mary’s College. As you know, we are in the final phase of the presidential search and just completed our final candidate interview early evening on Friday.

A special thanks to all of you who took the time to meet the candidates via Zoom during their campus visits last week. Each candidate shared that they enjoyed their visit and felt welcomed by our community. We are also grateful for the many questions submitted in advance of the candidate’s visits. They provided us an opportunity to become better acquainted with the candidates and also provided an excellent opportunity for the candidates to learn more about Saint Mary’s. In addition, your confidential input via Survey Monkey provided us with constructive feedback and valuable information. Again, our thanks for your active involvement in this process as it could not be accomplished without you.

This week we will also have our final Presidential Search Committee meeting. This will be the last time to convene collectively to advance information to the Board of Trustees in preparation for a recommendation to the Brother Visitor.

Thank you for your continued support of the Presidential Search. Although COVID has presented all of us with unique challenges the last ten months, we believe this is the start of an exciting time that will result in the selection of the 30th President of Saint Mary’s College.

We wish all of you a Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year.
