Search and Screen Committee, Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs

January 7, 2011

TO: UMD Campus Community

FROM: Lendley C. Black, Chancellor

RE: Search and Screen Committee, Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs

I am pleased to announce the membership of the committee which will help us conduct a national search to identify and screen candidates for the new Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs. This is the position I announced in November as a replacement for Vince Magnuson.

The committee and I will be assisted by the executive search firm, Academic Search, Inc. The committee will begin its work later this month with the intent of bringing candidates to campus for interviews during the spring semester. The committee will ensure multiple opportunities for input from faculty, staff, and students during the campus interviews. Following this process, I hope to hire the new Executive Vice Chancellor later in the spring with a start date of July 1, 2011.

Please join me in thanking these individuals for their service, and let me know if you have questions or comments.

Thank you.
