Search and Screen Committe, Vice Chancellor for Student Life

March 9, 2011

TO: UMD Campus Community

FROM: Lendley C. Black, Chancellor

RE: Search and Screen Committee, Vice Chancellor for Student Life

I am pleased to announce the membership of the committee which will help us conduct a national search to identify and screen candidates for the new Vice Chancellor for Student Life. This position is currently held by Jackie Millslagle, Interim Vice Chancellor for Academic Support and Student Life.

The committee and I will be assisted by the executive search firm, Academic Search, Inc. They will begin their work this month with the intent of bringing candidates to campus for interviews late in the spring semester. The committee will ensure multiple opportunities for input from faculty, staff, and students during the campus interviews. Following this process, I hope to hire the new Vice Chancellor later in the spring with a start date of August 1, 2011.

Please join me in thanking these individuals for their service, and let me know if you have questions or comments.

Thank you.
