Presidential Search Update: Candidates to Meet with Campus Community in Early October

September 25, 2020

Dear Seattle University Community,

As the Presidential Search Co-Chairs Betty Woods and John Vassall wrote in their message to the campus community on September 15, the Search Committee is excited to bring three strong finalists to campus for both in-person and online visits with students, faculty, staff, alumni and trustees. The visits will start on Oct. 1 and will continue through Oct. 8; Candidate #1 will be here Oct. 1-2; Candidate #2 will be here Oct. 5-6; and Candidate #3 will be here Oct. 7-8.

Below are the times for the Campus Open Forums, all of which will be held via Zoom:

Candidate materials will be made available 24 hours in advance of each candidate’s visit the Finalists link on the Presidential Transition webpage. Again, we ask that you treat the presidential search as a private matter within Seattle University out of respect for the process and each of the finalists. Therefore please do not post information about the candidates on social media or share outside of our Seattle University community. We can assure you that the candidates are impressive higher education leaders, working at or near the top of their college or university.

If you have any questions, please contact Anne Moran.
