Search for New Chancellor Extended
January 24, 2000
Korn Ferry, the search firm that conducted the national search to fill the chancellor's position at UConn, has been asked to submit by Jan. 31 a list of 12-15 candidates who would like to be considered for the position.
Ronald Taylor, vice provost for multicultural affairs and chair of the chancellor search committee, said yesterday the committee is gearing up for the next phase of the search, which was extended after a series of interviews last semester did not culminate in a selection.
Taylor said he and President Philip Austin, who will screen the initial list of candidates submitted by Korn Ferry International, hope to name a new chancellor by the conclusion of the spring semester.
Fred Maryanski will continue to serve as interim chancellor until a new chancellor is named.
Taylor said the search committee, originally formed last June, will scrutinize the screened list he and Austin will submit, then select several candidates for interviews. Taylor said he hopes to invite no more than two candidates to Storrs for in-depth interviews.
