Presidential Search Advisory Committee listening sessions

The Presidential Search Advisory Committee, which formed this month to help the process of finding President Barbara R. Snyder’s successor, will begin its listening sessions across campus today.

The Presidential Advisory Committee is composed of faculty, staff, students and two emeriti trustees. The advisory committee will help inform the search by gathering campus perspectives on key topics—for example, challenges and opportunities Case Western Reserve faces; experiences and qualities our next leader should possess; and aspirations for the university in the coming years.
