Chancellor Search: Invitation to Open Forum Sessions with Finalists
Dear PNW Community:
The Chancellor Search Advisory Committee is pleased to invite you to hear from three finalists and to provide your feedback to help inform the process of selecting the next Chancellor of Purdue University Northwest.
Each candidate has met, in person, with the Search Advisory Committee and were recommended to move forward in the process. Each of the three finalists will present an open forum in Alumni Hall in the Student Union and Library Building on the Hammond campus, with a Zoom option to view the presentation live. The candidates also will be meeting with representative groups of faculty, students, and administrators on both PNW campuses, as well as with President Mung Chiang and other senior Purdue leaders in West Lafayette.
The topic for each candidate’s presentation is: “Ensuring Quality and Defining Success: A Vision for PNW and Northwest Indiana.”
Each forum is open to all members of the university community. There will be a Q&A session included for those attending in person in Alumni Hall. Please note that no questions or comments will be facilitated in the Zoom option. Each session will be recorded, and recordings will be posted to the PNW website after all three candidates have had a chance to present to the university community. The video recordings are anticipated to be available upon conclusion of the final Open Forum session.
Your feedback on each candidate is important to the search process. Please use the Survey Links below to share your feedback on each candidate after attending or viewing their presentation. The surveys will close on Nov. 29, 2023 at 6 p.m. CST.
The schedule is as follows:
