RE: UI Staff attendance needed at upcoming UI President Search Town Hall meetings

UI Staff, we need your help to ensure all our voices are considered during the UI President selection process. In the coming week, we will have four UI Presidential candidates on campus for their final interviews. We encourage all staff to attend the open Town Hall meetings, ask questions, and provide feedback for each of the finalists.

Staff Council Executive Committee will be meeting with each candidate and providing feedback, but this does not diminish the need for your participation at the Town Hall meetings or for your individual feedback.

More information regarding the Presidential candidate’s and their scheduled visits can be found online at 24-hours prior to their visit.

Open Town Hall meetings are scheduled to take place:

         Candidate A: Thursday, August, 27           4:45pm - 6:15pm     IMU 2nd floor Ballroom
         Candidate B: Friday, August 28                4:45pm - 6:15pm     IMU Main Ballroom
         Candidate C: Monday, August 31              4:45pm - 6:15pm     IMU 2nd floor Ballroom
         Candidate D: Tuesday, September 1         4:45pm - 6:15pm     IMU 2nd floor Ballroom

All feedback regarding the individual candidates should be submitted no later than 11:59 PM Wednesday, September 2, 2015 via Parker Executive Search’s confidential website which will be set up for each candidate at  Your input counts, but only if submitted!

For those that cannot attend, the town hall meetings will stream live on the presidential search website:
