The University of Colorado Board of Regents has issued a call for nominations to the search committee that will work to find the institution’s next president.

The board is seeking nominations for individuals with diverse backgrounds and experiences.

The committee will include four members of the broader Colorado community to serve alongside CU faculty, staff, students and alumni in an inclusive and transparent search process. Community members will serve on the committee in a nonpartisan role.

Regent Lesley Smith is chairing the committee.

The process for applying to serve on the committee opened Wednesday and continues through Oct. 21. Those who wish to apply must complete and submit a web-based application form no later than Oct. 21.

The board plans to make final selections to the committee by mid-November.

Serving on the committee can be a substantial time commitment.

The search is expected to begin in early December and proceed through the spring. The search committee will recommend candidates for the presidency to the Board of Regents, which will make the final selection.

The presidential search is guided by Regent Policy 3-C, which details the makeup of the committee and its activities. The board also has published a website that provides the broad context for the search.
