Message from the Chair of the Provost & Vice President for Academic Affairs Search Committee
April 16, 2012
Dear Rider Community Members,
I am pleased to announce that our search for Rider’s next Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs is under way. The search committee recently held its first meeting and met with the principal search consultant, Steve Leo, from Storbeck/Pimentel & Associates. A search schedule has been established, the position ad finalized, and a document drafted which initially outlines the characteristics and experiences we are looking for in our next Provost, as well as the position’s priorities over the next several years.
We are asking the Rider community to help us refine that draft document by seeking your feedback and suggestions through the survey below:
Please provide your feedback by completing the survey no later than Thursday, April 26. Your responses are confidential and will go directly to our search firm, which will aggregate and analyze them and, subsequently, share the unattributed recommendations with the Search Committee. You may also wish to offer candidate suggestions and nominations. These will be followed up by our consultants.
We will keep the community informed on the progress of the search through regular updates.
