Dear members of the Sewanee family,

This is a progress report from the Vice-Chancellor search committee. Thanks again to all those who participated in the 10 campus forums and multiple meetings with all stakeholders. The feedback was great and very helpful. 

The online survey was completed by 1,651 people! The results have been reviewed by the committee and tabulated to get a clearer picture of what our constituents think we need in our next Vice-Chancellor. 

The job description and web portal were officially launched as of Oct. 30.  Please take a look at the position description and the website. 

131 nominations have been received by the search consultants to date. Please be assured that each will get the full attention and respect deserved. Please do not hesitate to send your own nominations through the website. At this point the search committee has not decided upon a nomination closing date. 

We should have another update near year’s end. Thank you for your interest in this important process.

Chair of the Vice-Chancellor Search Committee
