Search committee sets three forums
(Oct. 20, 2003)
The East Carolina University Chancellor Search Committee has scheduled three forums to collect ideas and suggestions for its work.
The forums will be held from 3:30-5 p.m. on Thursday (Oct. 23) in the auditorium of the Brody School of Medicine; from 3-4:30 p.m. on Oct. 28 in the Great Room at Mendenhall Student Center on campus and from 5:30-7 p.m. on Oct. 30 in Room 1203 of the Greenville Centre, 2200 S. Charles Blvd.
The search committee is seeking comments on problems, needs and opportunities facing ECU in the coming years; the preferred future of the university, and desirable qualities in a new chancellor.
Dr. William V. Muse, citing health concerns, resigned last month after two years as chancellor. Dr. Bill Shelton, vice chancellor for university advancement at ECU and former president of Eastern Michigan University, is serving as interim chancellor.
Individuals who wish to speak at the forums may register by calling 252-328-2789 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The committee also welcomes email feedback or letters addressed to Dr. Phyllis Horns, Secretary, Chancellor Search Committee, East Carolina University, Room 133 Rivers Building, Greenville, N.C. 27858-4353.
The committee plans to complete its work by March.
