EMU's presidential search progresses
YPSILANTI - The Presidential Search Advisory Committee (PSAC) held its fourth meeting Jan. 17 as it continued its search for Eastern Michigan University’s next president.
The 12-member committee, chaired by Regents Jim Stapleton and Roy Wilbanks, met to review some of the candidates who made the initial screening. Candidates will remain anonymous until the Board releases the finalists’ names.
The Compass Group Ltd., an executive search firm hired by the EMU Board of Regents, will accept applications through Feb. 1.
“We are impressed with the breadth and depth of experiences we’ve received from the various applicants and nominations. It’s obvious that this important position has caught the attention of so many viable applicants,” said Paul Czamanske, president and CEO, Compass Group Ltd. “The diversity of the potential candidates gives us confidence that the process is working well. We are also impressed with the dedication and commitment level of the PSAC.”
The advisory committee’s next meeting is scheduled for Feb. 8. For further updates, go to http://www.emich.edu/presidentialsearch/committee.html
