Board of Governors Seeks Community Feedback


In keeping with good governance practices, the governance committee of the Board of Governors is asking the U of G community for feedback about the recent presidential search process.

“With the announcement in January of the University’s next president, it’s timely for the board to pause and reflect on the policy and approach used for the search, with an eye to capturing learning from the recent experience,” says B of G governance committee chair Virginia McLaughlin.

Community consultations such as town hall meetings and drop-in sessions were critical to developing a position profile and to the search process, he said.

“We would welcome reflections and suggestions on this element or any features of the 2013 search,” adds board chair Dick Freeborough.

An overview of the steps and stages of the presidential search is available online.

The governance committee will incorporate community feedback in its review and discussion of best practices.

Send comments to by April 30.

McLaughlin and Freeborough thank the community in advance for its participation.
