Engage in the Process

  • As outlined last week, the Presidential Search process will include opportunities for the Gannon community to provide valuable input. The Presidential Search survey is your first opportunity to engage. You can take it here. As a reminder, the survey closes on Tuesday, Sept. 6.

    The next opportunity to engage in the process will be through open forums and focus group sessions. These will be facilitated by Scott Flanagan of Academic Search, the firm that has been hired to assist us. The first of these will occur in Ruskin on Friday, Sept. 9. Others will be held in Erie on Sept. 14 and Sept. 15.  

    The dates and locations for the open sessions are below.  

    • Friday, Sept. 9 -- from 8 to 9 a.m. in Ruskin (link will be shared next week)
    • Wednesday, Sep 14 -- from 3 to 4 p.m. in Waldron 219
    • Thursday, Sept. 15 -- from 8 to 9 a.m. in Waldron 219
    • Thursday, Sept. 15 -- from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. in Zurn 104

    Two remote sessions are also being planned. These will occur:

    In addition to these open forums, focus group sessions will be held for the Faculty Senate, the Provost Council, the Student Government Association, the President’s Leadership Team, and the National Alumni Board. The dates, times and locations of these sessions will be sent directly to the focus group participants. The focus group sessions will also include representation from staff and administrators as well as Erie community members.  

    Your participation in the open forums and focus groups will provide valuable information to inform the work of the Leadership Transition Committee.
