(Mountain Home) – Arkansas State University System President Dr. Charles L. Welch announced Wednesday that the search for the next Chancellor of ASU-Mountain Home is officially underway after the Chancellor Search Advisory Committee formally approved the position announcement.
Welch had recently announced the formation of a Chancellor Search Advisory Committee, which includes Faculty Senate President Karen Heslep; Faculty Association President Robert Shurley; Staff Senate President Kristina Hickman; Student Government Association President Stetson Painter; Student Ambassadors President Bethany Crawford; Advisory Council Chair Warren Haley; Advisory Council Past Chair Gayla Thompson; Staff Representative Amanda Throckmorton; and Administrative Representative John Davidson, to assist in the search process. Welch will chair the committee.
Welch says applications and nominations will be accepted for the chancellor’s position, and the university is seeking an innovative, progressive, proactive leader who has a student-first vision for the future.
Review of applications for the position will begin on May 1, and will continue until the position is filled. Following review of the applications, the advisory committee will recommend candidates to travel to Mountain Home for on-campus interview sessions. Opportunities will be available for campus and community members to engage with the finalist candidates and to provide feedback to the advisory committee on each candidate. The new chancellor will assume office on a date mutually agreed upon with the System President and Board of Trustees.
