The Presidential Search Committee is happy to report that the search for the next TLU president is progressing very well and remains on schedule. The search committee met most recently on Thursday, February 3, and began to select candidates whose backgrounds and experiences seem especially consistent with the qualifications established for the Texas Lutheran presidency. The committee will meet again on February 24 to continue evaluation and to select a small number of candidates who will be invited to confidential preliminary interviews with the search committee early in March. On completion of that round of interviews, the committee will select candidates to participate in more extensive interviews with representatives of all campus constituencies.

They are extremely pleased with the quality of the candidate pool and, as a result, continue to be mindful of the need for complete confidentiality. All remaining candidates are engaged in other assignments with very significant responsibilities. If you have any questions, please direct them to me (rmelvin) or to Tom Courtice, our search consultant (tom.courtice).
