All forums are open to all faculty, administrators, staff, students, and the general public. There will be a brief introduction of each candidate, followed by a question and answer session. Feedback forms will be given to all who attend, and the completed forms will be collected at the end of each forum and given to the Regional Board of Trustees for review.  We anticipate the forums taking place for each of the presidential finalists the week of January 28, 2019. The exact dates and times will be forthcoming.

We would like to convey our appreciation to the search committee for their important and valued work: kudos and job well done.
