It is my privilege to share with you an update on the progress of the search for the 14th President of Hope College. We are very pleased with the energy and engagement of the search. Thank you to those of you who made recommendations. We have a robust pool of highly qualified candidates whose leadership experience and priorities are well-aligned with the search profile for the President.
The Search Committee met on Monday, September 10 to identify a short list of candidates who the Committee considers particularly well-suited for the position of President. We are in the process of interviewing references for these candidates. The Committee will meet again October 1 to select a group of semi-finalists for interview November 2 or 3. These interviews will be conducted by the Committee at an off-campus location.
We will provide the next update following the October meeting. We ask that you continue to pray faithfully for the Committee and the search process.
Spera In Deo,
Search Committee Chairperson
