Dear members of the Sewanee family,

Before we all depart for a much-needed winter break, the Vice-Chancellor Search Committee wants to provide an update on the status of the search.

We are pleased to report that the search is progressing well and on schedule. Thanks to so many of you who recommended potential candidates. We also have a robust list of nominees from which we have attracted a strong and diverse pool of candidates. Since our last communication, the Vice-Chancellor Search Committee has met several times to begin its evaluation of candidate profiles against the criteria outlined in the position description. The process of narrowing the field will continue through the winter with multiple steps to include interviews and other vetting. We will share additional updates with you periodically.

The committee wishes all a safe and happy holiday season.


Joe DeLozier
Chair of the Vice-Chancellor Search Committee
