The Presidential Search Committee invites you to participate in the search process. Our consultant from Storbeck Search, Susan VanGilder, and Trustee and Presidential Search Committee Chair Peter Sundman ’81, will be on campus to offer several listening sessions, April 18-19, 2022.

These sessions provide individuals from a variety of constituencies an opportunity to register views about future needs and priorities for the role of the next president. We will be facilitating listening sessions with our college stakeholder groups and collecting the survey data to understand our community’s insights, suggestions, and aspirations for The College of Wooster’s 13th president. Your input will inform the prospectus we develop to formally advertise the position later this summer.
