Opportunity to provide input for Presidential Search
All University of Maine community members are invited to help the UMaine Presidential Search Committee understand the opportunities and challenges facing the university and provide input about the characteristics needed in the next president.
Input from many constituents is sought to help describe the position and set criteria for reviewing applications.
The search committee, chaired by Trustee Gregory Johnson, has been appointed and is beginning its work. Members of the committee will receive a report of input from campus listening sessions and may attend, as their schedules allow. The committee will have its first meeting Sept. 15.
Shelly Storbeck of Storbeck/Pimentel & Associates will assist the search as a consultant. Storbeck and her associate, Ethan Dubow, will be on campus Sept. 13–15 to conduct a site visit and listening sessions with constituents.
Open listening sessions for faculty, students and staff are scheduled for the following times and locations:
- Faculty: 4:15–5:15 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 13 in the Coe Room of the Memorial Union, and 3:30–4:30 p.m.
Thursday, Sept. 14 in the Bangor Room of the Memorial Union
- Staff: 2:15–3:15 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 14 in the Bangor Room of the Memorial Union
- Students: 4:45–5:45 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 14 in the Bangor Room of the Memorial Union
