This Presidential Search web page has been created to keep the Mansfield Campus Community informed on the search for a President for Mansfield University.
The search process will follow PASSHE Policy 1983-13-A: Process for Recommending Presidential Appointment.
The Presidential Search Committee has been formed in accordance with this policy, and to date has held two meetings. Greenwood/Asher & Associates, a nationally recognized search firm, with previous experience with PASSHE University searches, has been retained to assist the Committee.
The goal of the Committee is to have three candidates recommended to the Council of Trustees at their September meeting, and for the Chancellor and Board of Governors to make a final selection at their October meeting. If this timetable is maintained, the new President could be in place by January 2013.
A Communication Plan has been developed which identifies the various responsibilities and activities of the Search Committee, and will provide an opportunity to keep you apprised of the Committee’s progress.
