Fort Hays State University – Presidential Search

Dear Fort Hays State University Community,

As the Chair of the Fort Hays State University ("FHSU") Presidential Search Committee, I wanted to formally communicate how much I appreciate the many faculty (both on the FHSU campus and in China), staff, students, alumni and community partners who took the time to participate in the recent open forums designed to help the Search Committee better understand what attributes and characteristics are desired in the next FHSU President. Please be assured that the Search Committee carefully considered all of the thoughtful input received from the FHSU community when developing the Presidential Profile submitted to the Kansas Board of Regents.

It is critical to the success of the search process that we have continued engagement and participation by all FHSU constituencies. As a result, throughout the search process, if you have a specific nomination or want to express your personal interest in the role, you are welcome to provide this information to Wheless Partners, the search firm assisting with the search, by emailing a letter of interest and curriculum vitae to: President@WhelessPartners.com.

Since a high degree of confidentiality is required for this search to attract top candidates, the members of the Search Committee have pledged to keep all matters relating to the candidates and the search process highly confidential. Therefore, the Search Committee intends to create an atmosphere in which successful people who may not otherwise consider themselves to be "on the market" might be willing to explore the opportunity of becoming the tenth President of FHSU.

Thank you for all of your help, support and cooperation in this important search process.

Very truly yours,

JDP
