The Search Advisory Committee members for a new president of the University of Memphis have been selected and will meet for the first time in December following a public forum on the UofM campus about the search process.
The advisory committee will meet at 12:45 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 4, on the UofM campus in the University Center Bluff Room. Campus and community members are also invited to an open forum to discuss the criteria and search process for the new president from 11 a.m. – noon in the University Center River Room.
The search committee’s charge is to identify three to five finalists for the position of president who will visit the campus for interviews. Tennessee Board of Regents Chancellor John Morgan will then consult with members of the committee and make a final selection for submission to the TBR for approval.
The Tennessee Board of Regents will meet in regular quarterly session on Thursday, Dec. 5, at the TBR Offices in Nashville. The meeting will begin at noon CST in the Genesco Building Training Center.
The Board will hear reports from the chancellor, presidents and directors, and approve minutes of the Audit Committee and the Academic Policies and Programs Committee. Information items include a financial report overview and the results of an employer and alumni survey for the Tennessee Colleges of Applied Technology. New business action items include a recommendation for the new president at Cleveland State Community College, approval of the October revised budget, review of system-wide legislative initiatives, approval of academic program proposals, review of a new policy on branding, and approval of the proposed naming of a building.
