Presidential Search Committee to hold first meeting
The California State University Board of Trustees begins the search this month for a new president of San Francisco State University to succeed President Robert Corrigan, who is retiring.
The first meeting of the search committee will be held in an open forum from 10 a.m. to noon on Monday, Feb. 20 at the Seven Hills Conference Center. It will be followed by a closed meeting of the committee at 1 p.m. The 10 a.m. forum is the only meeting of the committee that is an open meeting.
The purpose of the open forum is to review the role of the committee, receive comments and input from the public and campus community, explain the search process and confidentiality, confirm the schedule of meetings, discuss preferred attributes of the next president, review the descriptions and needs of the campus and presidential position, and discuss any other business related to the search process.
The campus community is invited to attend the open forum, which will also be streamed live via the Internet. Please check the Presidential Transition website for the URL and for more information about the presidential search at www.sfsu.edu/~news/transition
