Resolution: Presidential Search Process

The Faculty Senate expresses dismay at the outcome of the presidential search, and urges that a new search be initiated in the very near future. We recommend that the search process be consistent with traditional and established search procedures.

A new search committee should be appointed from the appropriate interested constituencies; we recommend:

  • one regent
  • five faculty
  • one dean
  • two staff
  • two students
  • one alumnus/alumna

The appointments should be made from lists developed by the constituencies.

The search committee should identify a pool of qualified applicants based upon the established criteria, and present a list of at least ten semifinalists to the Board of Regents. The Board of Regents shall select from the list of semifinalists three to five finalists for on-campus interviews.

In making their final selection, the Board of Regents shall consult the various constituencies having an interest in UNM.
