Opportunities to Provide Further Input for Presidential Search

On Wednesday and Thursday, Jan- 17-18, Alberto Pimentel, managing partner of executive search firm Storbeck/Pimentel & Associates, will be on campus to meet with key stakeholder and constituent groups regarding UNC's presidential search. This is an opportunity to provide further input about the personal and professional qualities and characteristics sought in the next president. The search consultant and search committee will use your input to inform the position profile and to assist in the recruitment of a diverse and highly qualified candidate pool. Specifically, the search consultant is most interested in exploring the following questions:

  • Based on your experience at the University of Northern Colorado, what do you see as the short-term (immediate) and long-term (three to five years) challenges and opportunities facing the next president?
  • Given the opportunities and challenges you've described, what professional experiences and qualifications must the successful candidate possess? What personal qualities must the new president have in order to be a good "fit" with the University of Northern Colorado community?
  • What are the immediate initiatives that the president must be aware of and embrace?
  • What are the key positive attributes of University of Northern Colorado and the local community that the search firm should communicate to candidates? What are the most attractive features of University of Northern Colorado and how might those be used to attract the right candidates?

Two meetings have been scheduled for students. They will be:

  • Wednesday, Jan. 17, 4-4:45 p.m. in the University Center Spruce B
  • Thursday, January 18, 11:30 a.m.-12:15 p.m. in the University Center Spruce B.

If you are unable to attend a student meeting, meetings open to all members of campus will be:

  • Wednesday, January 17th, 5-5:30 p.m. in the University Center Spruce B
  • Thursday, January 18th, 12:30-1 p.m. in the University Center Spruce B.

Because the search consultant is meeting with many stakeholders, it will be important to adhere to the schedule. Therefore, it would be helpful if you prepare your thoughts and comments prior to your scheduled meeting. If you have any questions, please direct them to Vicki Niccum at 351-1152.
