Presidential Search Update: Search Plan Outlines Four Advisory Teams to Support Presidential Search Efforts

The Board of Regents approved a presidential search plan submitted by Dr. Hugh Prather, the consultant organizing the search effort for the college, in December.

“Rather than forming a search committee, we have created four advisory teams to give essential input during the search process,” said Dr. Prather. “Ultimately, however, this is a Board of Regents decision.”

The four advisory teams include a student advisory team, faculty advisory team, staff and administration advisory team, and a community advisory team.

Members of the advisory teams were selected through different processes. The faculty advisory team was selected and agreed upon by the faculty senate. The student senate also selected the student advisory team. The staff and administrative advisory team was selected based on results from a survey. The community advisory team was selected by the Board of Regents.

Dr. Prather is reporting to the Board of Regents on a weekly basis to outline progress and other important developments in the presidential search process.
