CMU Names Presidential Search Committee
A committee of 12 representatives of Central Methodist University has been appointed to lead the search for the 26th president of Central Methodist University.
Glenn Cox, chair of the CMU Board of Trustees, will chair the Presidential Search Committee. CMU has retained the services of AGB Search of Washington, D.C. to support the initiative, which will yield a successor to current President Marianne E. Inman when she retires next June 30.
Representing the CMU faculty will be Dr. James "Tiger" Gordon and Dr. Nancy Hadfield, while Student Governing Association President Kristen Bailey will represent students. Salum Stutzer and Kay Winegard are the staff representatives. Joe Garrett of Pacific, Mo., will represent the CMU Alumni Board.
CMU Board of Trustee members joining Cox (Bartlesville, Okla.) on the committee include Bob Courtney of St. Louis, former board chair and current chair of its Strategic Planning Committee; Terry Henderson of Troy, chair of the Trusteeship and Governance Committee; Janet Jacobs of Fayette, chair of the Advancement and Alumni Relations Committee; Tad Perry of Ft. Pierre, S.D., vice chair of the Board; and Louann Shaner of Hilton Head, S.C., a member of the Learning and Teaching Committee and the Strategic Planning Committee.
The search process will begin formally when the consultants come to campus August 28-30 to interview a broad range of constituents within the CMU community. Over the next several months the committee will receive and review applications, conduct telephone and personal interviews, and narrow the pool to the top candidates. The goal of the committee is to name the new President in early spring 2013.
AGB Search is an affiliate of the Association of Governing Boards of Colleges and Universities, established in 1921. Drs. Bruce Alton and Saundra Tracy, both former presidents of independent colleges, will be the AGB Search liaisons. Between them they have conducted more than 100 presidential searches, and Dr. Alton actually assisted Central Methodist in 1994-95 when Dr. Inman was selected as CMU president.
