Update on Behalf of the Presidential Search Committee

Dear Members of the La Salle University Community:

The presidential search is underway and I am writing with this additional update. With input from many of you, the search committee has completed the development of the Presidential Search Profile, to be used for all advertising and recruiting related to the search. A copy is available in the resources section of this website.

As you review the Search Profile, please pay particular attention to the attributes most highly desired in our next president. We urge you to suggest people you know who could serve effectively as our next president and/or those who might know potential candidates. Please forward their name(s) to our consultant, Tom Courtice, at tbc@agbsearch.com. The search committee is well aware that the success of our search depends on the involvement of all members of the La Salle community. By nominating strong candidates, you can immediately be involved in the search process.

Over the final months of 2013, we will generate the candidate pool through nominations received from you, contacts with national education and foundation officials, inquiries at other colleges and universities, letters to friends and alumni of La Salle, advertising in the Chronicle of Higher Education (10/25/2013 issue) and other publications, and the work of our consultant.

The search is off to a good start. I will write to you again as we enter subsequent stages of the process. In the meantime, don’t hesitate to contact me (presidentialsearch@lasalle.edu) if you have questions. Thank you for your interest and your support.
