Campus visits scheduled for vice president for research finalists

Four finalists have been identified in the search for the next vice president for research. They will visit campus in the coming weeks:

  • Candidate 1, March 9-10
  • Candidate 2, March 23-24
  • Candidate 3, March 26-27
  • Candidate 4, April 2-3

Each candidate will be announced one business day before their visit. During the interview, candidates will meet with faculty and staff and hold an open forum. The forums will be held on the first day of each visit (3-4 p.m.) in the Howe Hall auditorium:

  • Monday, March 9
  • Monday, March 23
  • Thursday, March 26
  • Thursday, April 2

The forums will be recorded and the archived recordings made available after the campus visits have concluded, for those unable to attend.

The next vice president will succeed Sarah Nusser, who in September announced her plans to step down at the end of the fiscal year. Dan Grooms, the Dr. Stephen G. Juelsgaard Dean of Veterinary Medicine, and Shauna Hallmark, professor of civil, construction and environmental engineering and director of the Institute for Transportation, are co-chairing an 18-member search committee. The Buffkin/Baker search firm, Nashville, is assisting.
