Marieme Foote, president of SGC, said the move to bring executive committees into the search has given her more confidence in the process.
The Cornell University Board of Trustees has named Martha E. Pollack, provost and executive vice president for academic affairs at the University of Michigan, the 14th president of Cornell University.
News Editor Aidan Quigley spoke with Grape, chairman of the college’s board of trustees, about these issues and, primarily, the college’s approach to the search for a new president.
Following a summer of work by the presidential search committee, meeting and vetting candidates, the search for a new president of Ithaca College has been narrowed to under 30 candidates. The committee’s stated goal is to select a new president of the college by the end of 2016.
“What’s really important for candidates is that they are getting the real story,” Asnicar said. “During this time, there probably has to be some healing, and the process of selection of another president can contribute to that.”
