The University of Arizona

Participate in UA Presidential Search Community Forums

By Jennifer Fitzenberger, September 30, 2011

The UA community is invited to participate in a series of forums seeking thoughts on the attributes the next University president should possess.

The Arizona Board of Regents Presidential Search Committee invites members of the University community to attend forums to share their perspectives about the qualities and attributes the next president of the University of Arizona should possess.

Attendees also will have an opportunity to provide input regarding the issues and opportunities that may come before the new president.

Additional information about the UA presidential search process, including a description of the desired leadership characteristics and a list of the search committee members, is available through the regents' website.

The committee is chaired by regents Dennis DeConcini and Rick Myers.

The community forums are open to all members of the University and broader community: students, faculty members, professionals, staff, University and community advisory councils, community leaders and stakeholders, government leaders, donors and alumni.

Said UA President Eugene G. Sander in a message to the UA community: "I hope that you will be able to attend one of the available sessions to provide your valued comments."
