Posted on 11/22/2011 3:53:50 PM

The Presidential Search Committee will host five candidates starting November 28, 2011, for the position of IUP president.

Several open forums for students, faculty and staff members, and members of the Indiana community will offer opportunities to meet and hear from the candidates.

Information about each candidate and the open forums will be available on the Presidential Candidate Visits website the day before and the day of each on-campus visit.

Open forums for the first presidential candidate include a student open forum from 9:45 to 10:30 a.m., two campus community open forums from 10:30 to 11:15 a.m. and from 4:30 to 5:15 p.m., and a faculty open forum from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m., all at the Crimson Event Center in Folger Hall. A reception for members of the Indiana community will be held from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. in the Kovalchick Convention and Athletic Complex’s PNC Room.

The other four candidates will come to campus November 30 and December 2, 5, and 9. The schedule of open forums will be the same for each candidate, but locations will vary. The reception for Indiana community members will remain in the Kovalchick Complex’s PNC Room for each date except November 30, when it will be at the Indiana Country Club. All other open forums on November 30 and December 2, 5, and 9 will be in Gorell Recital Hall in Sutton Hall. Updated information about the forums will be available on the Presidential Candidate Visits website.

The Presidential Search Committee has representation from the Council of Trustees, university employee unions, students, the IUP Alumni Association, and the Foundation for IUP. Trustee Susan Delaney chairs the committee.

The Presidential Search Committee selected the firm Witt-Kieffer to assist in the search process. The committee’s goal is to have a new president in place by July 1, 2012. Presidential Search Committee updates are available on the Presidential Search website.
