Dear Campus Community,

The Search Committee for the Vice President for Research is pleased to 
announce that we have identified a set of finalists to bring to campus 
for a final round of interviews.  The agenda has been finalized and all 
Outlook requests are now firm. We are very excited about this 
outstanding pool of finalists, all of whom have strong records of 
scholarly excellence, deep experience in the research enterprise, and a 
demonstrated history of attracting substantial research funding.

Each candidate will meet with key campus partners, including faculty, 
staff, and senior leaders, and will participate in an open forum 
followed by an informal reception.  The open forums will be live 
streamed and recorded, and the link to the live stream, as well as a 
link to the recording of each open forum, will be posted on I highly encourage you to 
attend or view the open forum for each candidate, and to leave feedback 
through the survey link provided. The search committee will carefully 
review any feedback received. _Please note that the links for the 
recorded campus forums and feedback surveys will be live for 24 hours 
after each candidate’s live forum. __
More detailed information about each finalist, including their CV, will 
be available on this web site immediately before their visit.  We hope 
that you are able to participate and willing to share your feedback with 
us.  We appreciate your contributions to this important process.

Sciences and Search Committee Chair
