Members of the search committee, along with UM System representatives and representatives of Isaacson, Miller, the firm assisting with the search, will be on campus to seek input on the proposed characteristics and desired qualifications for the next UM System president.
This is the first of four forums to be held during the first week of April on all four UM System campuses. Isaacson, Miller representatives will use input gathered from the forums to develop a qualifications statement for use in recruiting and selecting candidates.
