TO:                  Shepherd University Community
FROM:            John Sherwood, Board of Governors Chair
DATE:             September 19, 2006
SUBJECT:       Presidential Search Committee Meetings with Constituent Groups

The Board of Governors has established a Presidential Search Committee, which I am chairing.  While hiring a new president is ultimately the responsibility of the Board of Governors, everyone in the Shepherd community has a stake in the success of the search and your input is important.  We want to involve the campus community as much as possible in the search, early on in the process.

Our first task as a Search Committee is to formulate a Statement of Characteristics and Qualities for the next president of the University.  We are inviting Shepherd University constituents to meet with members of the Search Committee on Wednesday, September 27 to describe characteristics and qualities that they think the next president should possess.  We will do our best to collect your ideas and incorporate some of those thoughts, as appropriate, into the materials that will be given to all candidates.  Please join us in the Center for Legislative Studies Auditorium at the time designated below for your constituent group.  We look forward to hearing your comments.
