Memorial University’s presidential search committee is set to hold public consultations.

The committee said it wants to hear the public’s view about the future of the university, the candidate profile for the role of president and vice-chancellor, as well as to recommend individuals as potential candidates.

The public sessions are as follows: St. John’s campus, May 22 from 10:30-11:30 a.m. and May 23 from 5-6 p.m.; Marine Institute, May 24 from 11 a.m.-12 p.m.; Labrador Institute, May 27 from 10:30-11:30 a.m.; Grenfell Campus, May 28 from 10-11 a.m.

Board of Regents chairwoman Iris Petten also chairs the presidential search committee.

Those who prefer to forward a written submission and/or recommend candidates for consideration can do so until May 31 via an online survey available here.

The input received will contribute to a document that will be posted on the presidential search website.

President Gary Kachanoski will finish his second term at the end of December.
