Campus Visits

After the search for the position of UB RENEW Director was launched in February, 2014, an extensive recruitment effort was undertaken by the search committee including engagement of a well known search firm.  From this effort a well-qualified and diverse pool of candidates emerged.  These candidates represented an interesting array of experience in academic, professional, and leadership roles in a wide range of disciplines. 

Over the past several months, the search committee completed its file review, conducted confidential on-campus interviews with the strongest candidates, and has now recommended the best of these candidates for on-campus visits as finalists.

The first on-campus public visit will take place on Monday, August 18, and will include meetings with UB’s faculty, senior academic and administrative leadership, staff, students, and interested members of the broader Western NY community.  The campus visits will include three public forums at which the candidate will interact with students, faculty and staff, and members of the community. The search committee strongly encourages all interested members of these groups to attend. Candidate information and details on the public forums are available here.

The search committee invites input from the campus community following the candidate’s visit. Please direct any feedback or questions to the committee at Thank you for your interest and participation in the search for UB RENEW Director.
