To: UMD Campus Community

From: Chancellor Lendley C. Black

Subject: Search Committee for Director of External Affairs

I am pleased to announce that the Search Committee for the new Director of External Affairs has been formed, and that the pool of applications is currently under review. I would like to thank the Search Committee for sharing their time and their expertise working on this important search. The Director of External Affairs will provide leadership and administrative oversight to a newly created unit consisting of media and public relations, community relations, government relations, marketing and communication, publications and photography. This cabinet-level administrative position will be responsible for providing leadership, counsel and strategic direction to me as well as to the campus community. We hope to conduct campus interviews in August, with a fall starting date. Thank you.
