Presidential Search

A message from Search Committee Chair, Mary Jane Bowes

Dear Campus Community,

On Dec. 6 to 7, 2016, the Presidential Search Committee conducted a series of open forums to collect suggestions, recommendations, and advice from campus constituents and community leaders to help outline expectations for the next president of Bloomsburg University. As a result, the search committee, in partnership with the University Marketing and Communications office and executive search firm Witt/Kieffer, has developed a dynamic institutional/leadership profile to be used as part of the recruiting process, effective immediately.

The search committee will begin its review of candidates in early March 2017, with the goal of having the new president appointed by May 2017. Select candidates will be invited to campus in April to engage in dialogue with campus constituents. The campus community will have an opportunity to participate in the interview process and provide feedback during the April visits.
