Faculty, staff and students will have the opportunity to learn more about the search process for a new Chancellor on Monday, March 18, when a number of open informational sessions will be held on campus. Facilitated by consultants from the executive search firm Spencer Stuart and attended by Search Committee Chair and Vice Chair of the SU Board of Trustees Judge Joanne F. Alper ’72, the sessions are designed to update the campus community on the search process and how they can provide ideas and input to the Committee as it undertakes its work.
Ryan Williams, associate vice president, Enrollment Management, director of Scholarships & Student Aid, and a member of the Search Committee, will host the session for University staff from noon-1:30p.m. in the Underground, Schine Student Center. Later that day, Kendall Phillips, professor in the College of Visual and Performing Arts and a member of the Search Committee, will host the session for faculty from 4-5:30 p.m. in the Underground. That night, PJ Alampi ’14, a student on the Search Committee, will host the session for students in collaboration with the scheduled Student Association meeting from 7:30-9 p.m. in Maxwell Auditorium.
“The Search Committee is excited to begin this next phase of the process,” Alper says. “We are eager to hear from our many constituents and know that an open process like this is the best way to ensure our next Chancellor represents the wide range of people and interests that make Syracuse University such a dynamic and special place.”
In addition to the informational sessions, there are numerous ways for campus community members to learn about and provide input regarding the Chancellor search. Today, a new website launched at syr.edu/chancellorsearch that includes an online survey, search timeline, FAQ and an opportunity to suggest a specific candidate and/or provide other feedback to the Search Committee.
