Mansfield University’s Presidential search committee, with an endorsement from the State System Chancellor’s office, has begun the search for the university’s next President. The committee, which is chaired by trustee Karen Russell, held their first meeting on September 27th to discuss the vacancy.
The search will be led by RPA Inc., a Williamsport, PA-based firm specializing in higher education executive searches for 30 years. Consultants Dana Cohick and Richard Allen will guide the process. RPA also held an open forum with MU employees on September 27th.
Between October and the end of the year, networking and recruitment of candidates will take place. Candidates will then be on campus for interviews from January to March, with the finalist candidate sent to the Board of Governors for final approval later in the Spring.
