April 30, 2020

On Thursday, April 30 the Seattle University Board of Trustees met with search co-chairs Betty Woods and John Vassall to discuss the recommended Leadership Profile as brought forth by the Presidential Search Committee (PSC).

Following deep engagement and with additional recommendations by the Board, the Leadership Profile was approved.

Presidential Search consultants Dennis Barden and Suzanne Teer from WittKieffer shared with the Board of Trustees the process going forward, including questions related to the possible impact on the search from COVID-19.

The search timeline will proceed as originally proposed. Mr. Barden and Ms. Teer will be meeting with the PSC in mid-June to provide an update.
