|Presidential search consultant visits UND June 20|
James Appleberry of the Academic Search, Inc., the firm engaged by the State Board of Higher Education to assist UND in its search for our next president, will visit the UND campus Wednesday, June 20. The consultant's role in working with the search committee is to ensure that the search and selection process is managed effectively and that we achieve our goal of securing the best possible president for the University of North Dakota.
Dr. Appleberry is eager to have your insights into the present status and needs of the president’s position and your views of the kind of leadership we should be seeking, and for that purpose Dr. Appleberry is available to meet with anyone interested in speaking with him on Wednesday, June 20, in the Alumni Room of the Memorial Union from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. Your comments and those of other individuals interested in our University will be summarized in a report to the Presidential Search Committee. It will also be shared with constituents and with serious prospects for the presidency. Views expressed in the report will not be attributed to any individual, so I hope you will be candid.
