UNIVERSITY SEARCH AND SCREEN PROCEDURE
(Approved: Trustees 12/18/76)
The Trustees of the University, in the eventuality of a vacancy in the Presidency, accept the desirability of consultation with the faculty, staff and students of the University as well as with other university constituencies in the course of determining the selection of a President.
Furthermore, the Trustees acknowledge the "Search and Screen" approach as a useful method of consultation in the case of identifying candidates and making a selection of a President. Furthermore, the Trustees understand that the Affirmative Action Plan and policy which they have earlier adopted will apply fully in the case of the appointment of a President.
