ATHENS, W.Va. — The search for a new president at Concord University is officially underway.
The Presidential Search Committee at Concord University announced Tuesday they are beginning their search for the University’s 12th President.
The committee has recently approved a job advertisement which will be placed in higher education publications and recruiting websites such as The Chronicle of Higher Education and HigherEdJobs.com.
The advertisement has also been loaded into Concord’s talent management and applicant tracking system at https://jobs.concord.edu. Concord also plans to soon make available a Presidential Search web page on institutions website to assist candidates in learning about Concord and the job opportunity.
The search committee will accept applications and nominations through Jan. 15, 2014, at which time they will begin reviewing all applications. Candidates are expected to be selected and initial interviews will get underway in February of 2014. Additional interviews and a public forum will be held with the finalists between mid-March and early April 2014.
After receiving recommendations from the search committee, the Concord University Board of Governors will select the new President and then ultimately seek final approval by the West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission.
Former Concord President Dr. Gregory Aloia resigned from the position in the spring of 2013 to accept the position of President of the College of Coastal Georgia in Brunswick, Ga.
Kendra Boggess, former Interim Vice President for Academic Affairs and Professor of Business, is currently serving as Interim President of Concord University.
