To: PSU Campus and the Greater Plymouth Community
From: Eugene A. Savage, Chair
PSU Presidential Search Committee
The search for the next president of Plymouth State University has received strong interest and is proceeding on schedule. As of January 6, the deadline for applications, we had received 135 nominations or expressions of interest from a very diverse and strong pool of candidates. The Committee is extremely pleased with the quality of the candidate pool and our task of narrowing the field will be difficult.
We are presently reviewing materials from these candidates in an effort to select a smaller group that best addresses the leadership qualities we are looking for in the next PSU president. We expect to be able to provide more information on the process to the campus and greater Plymouth community toward the end of February. Thank you for your continued interest.
