Calling the group of leaders outstanding, UT Board of Trustees Chairman Joseph Zerbey told the UT campus community in a letter Thursday that the most important part of the search was still to come.
“The most important part of the search will take place in the coming weeks and as members of the UT community, you will play a critical role,” Zerbey said, noting that UT plans to set up feedback opportunities through the presidential search website.
Zerbey said that itineraries for the candidates would be developed and published in the coming days.
“While here, they will meet with leadership from our faculty, students, staff and administration, learn about the campus, and participate in open forums where members of the UT community can come ask questions and hear about the candidates’ visions for this University’s future,” Zerbey said.
Zerbey also had praise for the presidential search committee.
“On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I want to say how thankful we are for the input, expertise and guidance from faculty, staff and student leadership, as well as alumni, UT supporters and members of the community who served on the search committee.”
