Dear University of Oregon community members,
We are writing to provide an update on the search for the University of Oregon’s next president.
The deadline for nominations and applications is next Wednesday, February 1. The search committee again encourages any member of the university community or public to submit recommendations, nominations, or an application by this deadline. Instructions for submitting recommendations can be found on the presidential search webpage along with the presidential profile, approved by the UO Board of Trustees on December 6.
We are very pleased with the engagement by the university community as a part of the extensive outreach conducted by the 22-member search committee, the search firm, and UO trustees. Confidential review of materials will begin following the deadline and continue until the position is filled. Parker Executive Search will continue to assist the search committee throughout the process. The UO Board of Trustees hopes to name a new University of Oregon president in the spring.
We again thank the many community members who have provided input on the search process, presidential profile, and have already encouraged applicants to apply.
