Our third candidate has withdrawn his application.
The university will continue forward with the remaining finalists. Their campus visit schedules remain unchanged.
Thank you to our search committee
We received 51 applications for the position.
The search committee has been hard at work, reviewing application materials, conducting first-level interviews, and narrowing the pool.
I want to thank the 19 members of the search committee, chaired by Julie Masterson and Suzanne Shaw, for their excellent work in bringing us three highly qualified finalists.
Following the finalist interviews, I will discuss the search with the Board of Governors in closed session at their May 19 meeting. I anticipate announcing a decision shortly thereafter.
Thanks for all you do for Missouri State!
