Faculty and Staff
for Vice Chancellor, Academic Affairs and Research, to visit campus
Aug. 20, 2007 --
Dr. Glen Jones,
Arkansas State University-Jonesboro’s Interim Vice Chancellor for
Academic Affairs and Research, has announced the schedules for the
on-campus visits of the three finalists for the position of Vice
Chancellor for Academic Affairs and Research. The three finalists, all
veteran administrators in higher education, will be visiting the campus
beginning Monday, Sept. 10-Wednesday, Sept. 12.
Dr. Dee Hopkins, Dean of the College of Education at Texas A&M
University—Corpus Christi, will arrive on campus Monday, Sept. 10. Dr.
Chrisann Schiro-Geist, Senior Vice Provost for Academic Affairs at the
University of Memphis, will arrive on campus Tuesday, Sept. 11, and Dr.
G. Daniel Howard, Vice President for Administration and International
Relations at the University of North Alabama, will arrive on campus
Wednesday, Sept. 12.
All candidates will meet with various groups on campus, including vice
chancellors, the 10-member Search Committee, department chairs, ABI
representatives, program directors, the Academic Deans’ Council, the
Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and Research office staff, student
leaders, the Faculty Senate Executive Committee, and ASU-Jonesboro
chancellor, Dr. Robert L. Potts.
The highlight of each candidate’s visit to ASU-Jonesboro will be the
Campus Open Forum, scheduled for 3:30 p.m., in the Student Union
Auditorium on the day of the individual
candidate’s visit. The Campus Open Forum is open to all, and each
candidate’s presentation will be followed by a question-and-answer
session, ending at 5 p.m. (UPDATE: Monday's forum will be in Centennial
Hall of the Student Union).
According to Dr. Glen Jones, “Our goal is to broaden the campus
community’s participation in this process by providing significant
opportunities for the campus and the candidates to interact with each
other. The interview schedules reflect this goal and will provide each
candidate multiple opportunities to display their unique skill sets
before a variety of audiences. We will open an online evaluation process
beginning Thursday, Sept. 13, and closing Sunday, Sept. 16. An online
evaluation form will ask each member of the campus community to detail
what they perceive as the strengths and weaknesses of each candidate.
Those evaluations will be reviewed by the Search Committee.”
Chancellor Potts’ decision, after further consultation with the Search
Committee, is expected by the first week in October.
