DePauw University will begin the first round of interviews for its next president later this month. Korn Ferry Senior Partner Kathy Patterson Vrabeck, chair of the search committee, says the goal remains to announce the next president this spring.
The search process began in August after current president Brian Casey announced he would become president of Colgate University in July 2016. Vrabeck leads a search committee which includes alumni, students, faculty and administrators.
"I’m happy to update the DePauw community with news that interest in the position has been strong, and I thank our many friends who nominated or brought to our attention names of individuals to be considered to become DePauw’s next leader," Vrabeck stated. "Combining the input we received from the DePauw community with that of Isaacson, Miller, our search partner, a pool of diverse, well-qualified candidates has emerged."
Vrabeck adds the interviews will be conducted confidentially in order to assure the candidates’ privacy. The person selected for the position will be the university’s 20th president.
