As directed by the Board of Trustees in December, the process for selection of a chancellor for the Jonesboro campus is getting underway. 
One of the first steps in the search will be a series of Town Hall Forums where students, faculty, staff and other interested individuals may learn more about the purpose for the new position and to give opinions on the type of individual ASU should seek. A series of 17 Town Hall Forums is scheduled for Wednesday through Friday, Feb. 15-17, at various locations on campus and in the community. Click on Chancellor Search to access the web page where you may register for your preferred Town Hall Forum; click on NewsPage to review a news release about the process.  Interested persons should register by noon Monday.
