September 6, 2017
Dear Members of the Saint Michael’s Community,
September is upon us, with the new academic year started we thought it was a good time for an update on the Presidential Search. The Presidential Search Committee has been working with our search firm AGB this summer, and as you can see on the Saint Michael’s College website, the search is now active. The Search Committee met yesterday with AGB to go over the applicants received to date. There will be many more resumes to review before the September 27, 2017 application due date.
So far the pool has been robust and we are looking forward to reviewing all of the potential candidates. Our next meeting will take place in early October. We will have chosen 8 to 10 finalists for discussion by then. These are the candidates who will be invited to off-campus interviews in November, with the goal of having several candidates to choose from during on-site interviews in January. Please go to the website and make suggestions or recommend potential candidates at smcvt.edu/president-search. We are eager to have your input.
Chair, Board of Trustees and Presidential Search Committee
