The faculty and staff at Western Kentucky University are being asked to give input related to the search for the school’s next president.
A forum for faculty is being held Friday afternoon, April 15, on campus, and staff members are invited to a forum Friday, April 22.
WKU President Gary Ransdell has announced he’ll retire at the end of June 2017.
Doctor Phillip Bale of Glasgow, chair of the presidential search committee, says the early announcement by Ransdell gives the committee ample time to do a thorough job.
“I envision the next several months will be spent mainly developing our position profile—that is, what sort of skill set and what sort of attributes do we want the next president to have,” Dr. Bale said.
Ransdell will have served as WKU president for 20 years when he steps down.
