WHAT: The University of Illinois’ presidential search committee is holding public forums on each of the University’s three campuses to give faculty, students, staff and the general public an opportunity to discuss qualities needed for the new president.
WHEN: Tuesday, December 8, 2009 from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m.
WHERE: University of Illinois Springfield - Brookens Library Auditorium
DETAILS: U of I trustee and presidential search committee chair Pamela B. Strobel will moderate the public forum, and other members of the 19-member Search Committee to Assist in the Selection of a President for the University of Illinois also will attend.
Strobel says the forums are intended to be “listening sessions,” using the ideas of campus constituencies to help assess the qualifications and experience the new University of Illinois president should possess.
The search committee will identify and screen potential presidential candidates. The goal is to have a new president in place by July 1, 2010, or at the latest when the fall 2010 academic year begins.
Individuals wishing to speak to the representatives of the search committee will be asked to sign in before the forum begins. Comments may also be sent to the search committee at: email@example.com.
