The search for the next President of Warren Wilson is progressing on schedule. The search committee met most recently on Thursday, December 1 and selected 15 candidates whose background and experience seem consistent with the qualities and qualifications established for the search. At this time, references for these candidates are being checked by committee members and by our consultant. The committee will meet again on January 7 to discuss the results of our reference calls and to select a smaller number of candidates who will be invited to confidential preliminary interviews with the search committee. On completion of that round of interviews, the committee will select candidates to be asked to participate in extensive on-campus interviews with all constituencies in the College community. We will notify you of the specific dates and times of these visits as soon as they are scheduled.
We are continuing to accept expressions of interest from prospective candidates and have every reason to believe that our search will come to a successful and timely conclusion. If you have any questions, please direct them to me in care of Allyson Hettrick, or to our consultant, Dr. Collier (phone: 910-695-9953).
My thanks for your interest and support.
Ronald F. Hunt, Chair, Presidential Search Committee
