The candidates have been on campus engaging with the various constituencies over the past two weeks. The search committee, endeavouring to be inclusive, is anxious to receive feedback on those visits. Please conclude your assessments and forward them to a member of the Search Committee (as listed on the website) or place in the suggestion box near the mailroom on campus as soon as possible.
Thank you everyone for your participation in the search.

Thank you for your input and participation in the campus visit by R.H. Perry consultants Matthew Kilcoyne and Rusty Martin in September. Through the many conversations with students, alumni, faculty, staff and Town of Paxton officials, a presidential profile has been finalized.
As you know, the search process timeline will occur in five phases. The completion of the presidential profile represents the end of Phase 1: Needs Assessment & Marketing. We now move into Phase 2: Recruitment Strategy and Candidate Management that includes implementing a general and targeted recruitment strategy, nominations and outreach. During this phase, the Search Committee reviews the top candidates’ background and qualifications. Nominations and completed applications are due by November 7 at which time the review committee will begin to evaluate the candidates.
If you have any questions, please contact any search committee member, or connect through the website, or email Kay Prentiss at firstname.lastname@example.org or (508) 849-3228. I look forward to hearing from you.

The search process timeline will occur in five phases. These include Needs Assessment and Marketing; Recruitment Strategy and Candidate Management; Selection and Evaluation; Finalist Due Diligence; and Finalist Interviews & Appointment
This phase includes the Search Committee conducting a pre-search study to develop an Executive Profile and an advertising strategy.
This stage includes implementing a general and targeted recruitment strategy, including nominations and outreach. During this phase, the Search Committee reviews the top candidates’ background and qualifications.
During Phase III, top candidates’ profiles are provided to the Search Committee. The Committee then selects the semi-finalists, interviews are conducted and finalists are determined.
Final evaluation of the top candidates is conducted during this step.
This phase begins with final candidates visiting Anna Maria College for interviews. The phase and the whole search process come to a close when the president is selected and he or she assumes office.
