The 2015-16 Presidential Search Advisory Committee is charged with identifying and recommending to the Board of Visitors candidates for selection as the tenth president of the University of Mary Washington.

Stakeholder Advisory Group Named for UMW Presidential Search

As an important part of the hybrid search model adopted for the UMW Presidential Search, Rector Holly T. Cuellar ’89 has appointed the following individuals to serve as the expanded Stakeholder Advisory Group.  The role of the Stakeholder Advisory Group is to interview semifinalist candidates and offer feedback to the Presidential Search Advisory Committee.  The Presidential Search Advisory Committee will then forward finalists to the Board of Visitors.  Ultimately, it is the Board of Visitors as a whole that has the responsibility to appoint the president.

The search process remains highly confidential.  The Stakeholder Advisory Group has received confidentiality and Freedom of Information Act training by Ronald C. Forehand, Senior Assistant Attorney General and Chief of the Education Section, who is the designated Virginia official for presidential searches.  Each member of the group has signed a confidentiality agreement.  Interviews will be held within the next fifteen days, at undisclosed times and locations.
