Search for university human resources VP begins

The committee searching for the next vice president for university human resources hopes to bring candidates to campus for interviews by late spring.

University counsel Michael Norton and Liberal Arts and Sciences dean Beate Schmittmann lead the eight-member search committee.

Schmittmann encouraged faculty and staff to suggest candidates for the position.

"We've engaged Parker Executive Search to assist in our recruiting," she said. "But we'd also like to enlist the help of our valued university community to identify candidates."
