Candidates Named - Interview Visits Feb. 24 - March 1
The search for a permanent president for SUNY Empire State College has progressed to the point where five semi-finalists have been selected by the Presidential Search Committee to visit the college during the week of Feb. 24 through March 1.
Announcement of the names of the semi-finalists prior to visiting the college is in accordance with the “SUNY Guide to Searches at State-operated Institutions.”
Cover letters and curriculum vitae from each of the semi-finalists, as well as information about the overall process, the membership of the search committee and the search guidelines can be found on the college’s Presidential Search Website.
The activities for each of the candidates’ visits are posted to the search website and all presentations to faculty and staff will be available through live webcasting for those not able to attend in person. Webcasts may be accessed through ESC-TV. ESC-TV also may be accessed by copying and pasting the following URL into a browser: www.esc.edu/esc-tv/.
Beginning at 9 a.m. and running through 11 a.m., each candidate’s presentation to the college community, including the question-and-answer session, and the conversation with the college community taking place from 2:30 – 3:30 p.m. will be available by video conference at each of the college’s centers. These sessions also will be webcast live via ESC-TV.
Questions may be submitted to the candidates using the firstname.lastname@example.org email address.
After visits by all five semi-finalists have taken place, the college community will be surveyed and the results will be provided to the search committee. At the March 6 meeting of the College Council, the search committee and the council are scheduled to meet together to discuss the candidacies of the semi-finalists and the results of the survey of the college community.
As detailed in the search guidelines, the council will then meet on its own for further deliberation and subsequently forward to Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher its recommendations.
The chancellor, with likely participation from her senior staff, will then interview the finalists and select one name to forward to the SUNY Board of Trustees for a vote in public session at an upcoming meeting.
