Presidential Search Forum to be held on April 3

Penn State Berks will host a Penn State Presidential Search Open Forum on Wednesday, April 3, 2013, from 2:00-3:30 p.m. in room 121 of the Gaige Technology and Business Innovation Building. This forum is open to Penn State Berks students, faculty, and staff, as well as faculty and staff from nearby Penn State campuses.

The purpose of the forum is to engage the members of the Penn State community to inform the University Presidential Search and Screen Committee about the qualities they are seeking in a new leader, as well as identify the challenges and opportunities that will await the next president. The session will be facilitated by Nan Crouter, Dean of the College of Health and Human Development and Chair of the University Presidential Search and Screen Committee, and Dan Hagen, Professor of Animal Science and Vice Chair of the University Presidential Search and Screen Committee. The results of the discussion will be shared with the executive search firm, Isaacson, Miller, and will be beneficial as they establish a position profile and work on developing a robust pool of candidates.

Continued opportunity to provide thought into the process spans well beyond these open forums as input from the University community can be shared with Isaacson, Miller through a dedicated mailbox provided for this purpose, which can be found at the Presidential Search web site.
