As chair of Park University’s Board of Trustees, I am pleased to provide you with an update from the Search Committee for the University’s next president. This update provides some information related to the process and progression of the search. The Search Committee has been tirelessly working to examine the entire pool of candidates, and I fully expect that through their diligent efforts, a group of compelling finalists will be selected, ultimately leading to the appointment of a highly qualified and visionary permanent president.

It is with anticipation and excitement that I write this note as interim president at Park University beginning today. As I begin my fifth year at Park, I am honored to have the opportunity to serve the University and its constituents. I want to thank President Dave Fowler for his selfless service to Park and the community. His hard work and diligence as he moved many key initiatives forward is appreciated. I wish him all the best in retirement and I am positive he will remain a friend and supporter of Park University.

Park University has retained EFL Associates Inc., an executive search firm based in Leawood, Kan., to conduct the search for both the University’s presidential search and the vice president for enrollment and student services search.
Park’s next president must be a strategic thinker who not only has clear goals and objectives in mind, but also knows how to create a culture of productivity and accountability that drive results in a complex environment. He or she must have both financial/organizational acumen and a long-term vision for academic excellence.
