Regents launch presidential search website

As the search for CU’s next president picks up momentum, the Board of Regents has created a presidential search website to keep the university community informed of progress, solicit input and feedback, and detail the policies and principles guiding the search.

The board posted guiding principles on the site that articulate how it intends to proceed. One notes that “The Board of Regents is committed to a transparent process that engages the university community to find the best leader to guide CU into the future while meeting its mission to serve the students and the state.”

While much information on the site is current, including revisions the board adopted last week to Regent Policy 3-C (which guides the search), other details are still being determined. The board is expected to issue a call for nominations for the search committee soon. It is also refining the president’s job description, which will be posted later. Additionally, regents are scheduling a series of listening sessions with governance groups and others inside and outside the university, and the website will have updated schedules as meetings are set.

The site has a form where people inside and outside CU can provide their input on the process or the position. It also features a list of frequently asked questions.
