The search for the 18th president of Edinboro University continues on, as the Presidential Search Committee has made an official description for the position available for all interested candidates.

The description, which explains the challenges of the role, as well as what the committee considers to be an ideal candidate, was developed in conjunction with the firm Greenwood/Asher & Associates, Inc., who specialize in the executive search process.

The firm, while working with the committee, determined what the university needs from a leader, as well as gaining insight from the chancellor of Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education.

According to Harold Shields, chairperson of the Presidential Search Committee, the position description is a “valuable tool” that can be used to effectively and efficiently find a new president for the university.

With this information, as well as the public availability of the description, the committee is hopeful that a suitable president can be found soon.

“I am confident that we have a document that will sere us well as we move toward out goal, which is identifying an individual who will lead Edinboro University to its next era of excellence,” Shields said in an email.

More information on both the position description and the process established by the Board of Governors of Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education can be found online on edinboro. edu, under the “Presidential Search Information” section of the homepage.
