UPDATE ON THE SEARCH FOR THE NEXT PRESIDENT AT THE COLLEGE OF SAINT BENEDICT

Dear CSB/SJU Community:

On behalf of the CSB Presidential Search Committee, we thank you for the wonderful experience you provided all three presidential candidates over the past week. All three candidates expressed appreciation for the authentic Benedictine hospitality extended to them, the intellectual vitality they observed within our community, and the thoughtful questions they were asked during their visits. We thank you, too, for your flexibility as the winter weather challenged the first candidate's visit.

The Search Committee and Board of Trustees will meet in the coming weeks to complete the selection of the next president of College of Saint Benedict. We will carefully consider all input received from the CSB/SJU community.

Our commitment to confidentiality will remain uncompromised during the final stage of this process. Know that this final stage must be done in a manner that ensures that our search produces a successful result and consequently may take a few weeks. Please be assured that we will announce the name of our next president as soon as we possibly can.

Thank you again for your support and interest in this process.

Sincerely,

Lynn Newman
