Presidential Search Committee Releases Search Prospectus


Adelphi's "Search for the Next President" Prospectus

Dear Members of the Adelphi Community,

On behalf of the presidential search committee, we are pleased to share this “Search for the Next President” prospectus. This document will be used by Storbeck/Pimentel, our executive recruiting firm, as a key tool in the recruitment process and its development was a key milestone in the search effort. The committee extends its thanks to the members of the campus community who shared their input, both in person through the on campus meetings or through the online survey, regarding the qualifications, expectations, and opportunities for the next president. This direction provided a solid foundation for the committee.

Most sincerely,

Mr. Robert B. Willumstad and Dr. Gerry House

Search Committee co-chairs
