The College of Charleston Board of Trustees today announced the names of the three finalists in the search for the 23rd president of the College.
The board voted to invite the following three finalists to participate in a series of interviews and open campus forums next week:
- Michael T. Benson, president, Eastern Kentucky University (top left)
- Andrew T. Hsu, provost and executive vice president of academic affairs, University of Toledo (top middle)
- Rhonda Phillips, dean, Honors College, Purdue University (top right)
More information about each of the finalists, including bios and resumes/CVs, is available on the Presidential Search website.
“These three finalists represent a wealth of academic experience, and they all impressed the trustees with their passion for and commitment to the liberal arts and sciences as well as their understanding and insight related to the fast-changing landscape of higher education,” Trustee Renee Buyck Romberger ’81, chair of the Presidential Search Committee, said in a message to the campus community. “They all also possess a talent for connecting their universities with area businesses and nonprofits to ensure their institutions not only remain relevant, but that they are leading voices in their respective communities.”
Each of the three finalists is expected to spend about a day and half on campus from Tuesday, Nov. 13, through Friday, Nov. 16, 2018. All members of the campus community will have the opportunity to attend the open candidate forums and provide feedback via an online survey. In addition, deans, administrators and other campus and volunteer leaders will meet in closed interviews with each candidate. A full schedule for the campus interviews and open forums will be announced to the campus on Friday, Nov. 9.
“We look forward to the campus community meeting and talking with these three extraordinary individuals,” said Romberger. “We hope you will be equally as impressed with them as we are.”
