Dear Members of the Hobart and William Smith Community,
Thank you so much for participating in the events of the past several days. Many of you made time to attend the open forum meetings and the discussions with the presidential candidates and shared your impressions through the online feedback forms or via email to members of the search committee. The search committee welcomes and values your input.
At this point in the process, the careful weighing of input happens as the search committee prepares to make a recommendation to the Board of Trustees. This will be followed by a vote by the Board of Trustees and further engagement with the candidate. This will happen over the course of the coming weeks. In the meantime, we ask that faculty, staff and students do not engage in online discussions about the candidates as we wish to maintain the integrity of the process through to the end.
We look forward to announcing a new president to the campus sometime later in the spring.
With warm regards,
Katherine Elliott '66 and Thomas Poole '61
Co-Chairs, Presidential Search Committee
