Presidential Search Committee Update

Dear Members of the CSB/SJU Community:

On behalf of the search committee, we’re pleased to share a brief update on the status of the search for the inaugural joint president at the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John’s University.

As anticipated, we received strong interest in the presidential role including many strong candidates submitting applications. The Search Committee has reviewed those applications and is excited to conduct initial interviews in the weeks ahead. We are grateful to all of our colleagues on the Search Committee for their commitment and engagement in this process.

We are pleased with the progress of the search to date. At this point, we remain on the timeline we shared with you in December—with finalist interviews to occur in February and recommendation for action brought to the Board shortly thereafter.

Feel free, as always, to reach out to either of us with any questions you may have. 

Thank you for your support!

Bennett Morgan and Terry Dolan
Presidential Search Committee Co-chairs
