The Committee held its first meeting on January 26, 2017, to interview search firms and subsequent to that meeting Witt/Kieffer has been selected as the firm to support our search for the 14th president of Salem State University. We look forward to working with Witt/Kieffer to develop a highly qualified pool of candidates for this position.
In the coming weeks Witt/Kieffer will engage in discussions with the campus community to help inform the draft prospectus. Every effort will be made to include all constituencies in this important step. Additional information, meeting dates, minutes, and the position prospectus (once completed) can be found here.
As the committee moves forward with its work, we will continue to share regular updates with the community.
