Update on the Presidential Search

October 10, 2017

Dear Members of the Saint Michael’s Community,

The Presidential Search Committee met last week and after reading more than sixty resumes we have developed a short list of highly accomplished individuals for further consideration. These candidates will be invited to off-site interviews in November, with the goal of having several candidates to choose from during on-site interviews in January. The committee was impressed with the depth and quality of the applicants who aspire to be the next President of Saint Michael’s College.

The search committee will interview all of the potential candidates in person after completing rigorous background research on each applicant. I will do my best to keep you informed, while understanding that to maintain the best candidate pool possible, their names must remain highly confidential at this stage of the search. Once we can make our finalists known we will update you as soon as possible.  

We have received and discussed all the questions from various groups, both on and off campus and will continue to do so. Please go to the website to post your thoughts, questions and suggestions at Also, if you have any questions or comments please feel free to contact me or any of the members of the search committee. We value your input and please know that you are heard.

Mary-Kate McKenna

Chair, Board of Trustees and Presidential Search Committee
