The finalists will meet with Faculty, Departmental Chairs, Student Representatives, Vice Presidents, Deans, Administrative Staff, Alumni and Baruch College Fund representatives. Finalists will also address a one-hour Town Hall Meeting/Open Forum to which all members of the campus community are invited. Following introductory comments by the candidates, audience members will have an opportunity to ask questions. Individuals are urged to refrain from making inquiries about specific candidates through telephone calls or any other means. Carrying out background checks on the candidates is the responsibility of the Search Committee and should not be undertaken by any member of the campus community. If there are specific concerns, please convey them to the Korn/Ferry Consultant Nancy Cook via email at Nancy.Cook@kornferry.com and they will be handled accordingly.

Each of the campus groups selected to meet with the candidates will file a feedback report. The Chancellor will consider these reports and advice as he evaluates the candidates.

Ms. Mary Gorman Hetherington, Office of the President, is serving as the Campus Liaison. She has circulated on campus a schedule for all meetings, as well as the location for each day’s Open Forum.

Biographies submitted by each of the candidates are attached. The full curriculum vitae for each candidate is available through Ms. Gorman Hetherington.

Thank you for your interest and support.
