Presidential search forums set for input

Oct. 25, 2006

KALAMAZOO--Three public sessions will take place Wednesday, Nov. 1, to give members of the campus and local communities an opportunity to describe the qualities and characteristics the next president of Western Michigan University should possess.

The 90-minute sessions will begin at 10 a.m., 2 and 6 p.m., and all three sessions will take place in the Bernhard Center's West Ballroom. Faculty, staff, students, retirees, alumni and members of the general public are encouraged to attend and share their views about the needs of the university and the type of person who can best lead it.

Members of the Presidential Search Advisory Committee will be on hand as well as consultants from the firm the University has employed to assist in the search. The national search is being led by WMU Trustee Kenneth Miller of Kalamazoo, who is chair of the advisory committee, and vice chair Trustee Larry Tolbert, also of Kalamazoo.

Those unable to attend any of the three sessions are invited to send their comments for the board to Betty Kocher, secretary of the board, at betty.kocher@wmich.edu or by mail to the Board of Trustees Office, 3050 Seibert Administration Building, Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo MI 49008-5219.
