I’m writing to share this update on Colorado College’s Presidential Search from Search Committee Chair Jeff Keller ’91, P’22, below:
Dear Colorado College Community,
While I realize that the CC community is navigating the challenges and uncertainties of the pandemic, I felt you would appreciate an update on the presidential search.
To put it succinctly: the search is going very well. Through the efforts of our search consultants, Storbeck Search & Associates, and members of the search committee, we have completed the recruitment phase of the search. The pool of candidates for the presidency is extraordinary—deep, diverse, very talented, and very exciting.
The search committee is now in the process of assessing candidates, narrowing the pool, and conducting interviews. After completing this assessment phase of the search, the committee will make a recommendation to the Board of Trustees, which will appoint the new president. The new president will join CC by the summer of 2021.
Neither the pool of candidates, nor the search schedule, have been negatively impacted by the pandemic. CC’s excellent academic program, faculty, students, staff, location, and reputation have attracted a very impressive group of applicants.
I want to thank the entire community for sending your thoughts about the presidency and the search and for nominating candidates. I particularly want to thank the search committee, which includes CC faculty, staff, and students as well as trustees, for their hard work over the summer, and in the weeks and months to come.
Please stay safe and well.
Jeff Keller ’91, P’22
Search Committee Chair
Trustee and Vice Chair, Board of Trustees
