Update from the Chair
December 16, 2013
The search for the 25th President of Mount St. Mary's University is moving along well.
The Search Committee has been very pleased with the quality of the candidates that have expressed an interest in this great opportunity. The Committee has reduced the applicant pool to a smaller group of candidates whose background and experience seem especially consistent with the qualities and qualifications for the President as established in our Search Profile. Our Search Committee members, together with our search consultants, will check the references of candidates we have invited to confidential preliminary interviews with the Search Committee in mid-January at an off-campus location. Upon completion of that round of interviews, the Committee will select candidates to participate in more extensive on-campus interviews with a broad range of campus constituents. We will schedule on-campus visits for our finalists and will notify you of the specific dates and times of these visits as soon as they are scheduled.
We are very pleased with the quality of the candidate pool and have every reason to believe that our search will come to a successful conclusion. If you have any questions, please direct those to me or you may contact our search consultants, Jackie Doud and Maya Kirkhope. We will treat any information you provide as confidential.
Thank you for your interest and support.
J. Scott Wilfong
Chair, President of the Search Committee
