Update on Search for Provost and VP for Academic Affairs


Contributed by Nancy Pringle

I am writing to provide another update on the search for Ithaca College’s next Provost and VPAA. The search committee met recently and identified a small number of candidates to be invited to participate in confidential preliminary interviews with the search committee in early October. The committee faced difficult choices as it considered the applications of a diverse and highly talented pool of academic leaders.

Upon completion of the preliminary interviews, the committee will identify candidates to be invited as finalists to participate in more extensive on-campus interviews in late October and early November. The campus interviews will be structured to provide opportunity for broad participation in the process.

The committee members are very pleased with the quality of the semi-finalist candidates, and we approach the off-campus interviews encouraged by the breadth and depth of their experiences.

We remain excited about the ultimate outcome of the search process. If you have any questions, please direct them to me at npringle@ithaca.edu or to our consultant, Ms. Julie Tea, at Julie.Tea@academic-search.com.

Thank you for your continued interest and support. I will update you again when the finalists have been identified.
