MSSU Executive Committee Meets to Discuss Presidential Search

Updated:

Missouri Southern is searching for its next university President, but before applications can be accepted, members of the board of governor's are looking for a way to make the process as smooth as possible by establishing a hiring plan.

Looking to fine tune the details of what makes the perfect candidate for president, members of the executive committee of the MSSU Board of Governors held a special meeting.

"We not only learned what they were interested in today, but we also get input from them on what they would like us to do. It makes everybody's lives a little easier." says board chairman, Richard Walter.

 

A formal charge will be presented to the rest of the Board of Governors at its next meeting to highlight recommendations and steps to take for hiring the next University President. The charge will be passed over to the search committee, which will work  to seek out the right candidate for the position.

"The reason we gathered such a broad based search committee is so that we would have representatives from various organizations and communities in the region and those representatives are going to be seeking input from citizens." says member, Sherry Buchanan.

One suggestion for the charge included having members stay in the loop, and be involved in the process.

"Communication is very critical. Because communications leads to relationships, good relationships. Good relationships leads to trust. So communication also helps work or efforts to be more successful." says Walter.

Members gave their opinions on the hiring process - including whether to hire on a local, regional, state, national or international level, a time frame for the hiring to take place, how much pay the president will  receive, and when faculty and students would meet the future prospects for president.

"Many universities are now looking beyond accommodations to fill that role. And the way the committee will look at it is yes, they have to be highly informed about hire education, that does not mean they have to come from within the higher education community." Buchanan says.

Buchanan and Walter will be presenting the charge to the board of governor's at the January 17th meeting.
