Engage in the Retrospective Review of the 2019 Presidential Search Process

To help inform and set a course for the next search, the Board is completing a retrospective review of the 2019 presidential search process.  A retrospective review is an opportunity to evaluate a work effort after it is completed and gathers feedback on what went well, what did not go according to plan, and what could be done differently in the future. 

Retrospective results will be reviewed with trustees at the Board’s May 21, 2021, meeting and preliminary recommendations for the next search process will be discussed. Additional input and information will continue to be gathered following this discussion. The next presidential search will not begin until the fall term to ensure that students and nine-month faculty are available to participate.

All members of the OSU community are encouraged to provide feedback on the last search. More information on the survey is below.
