Open Forums for Director of CALS Business Services

In March the search was launched for the next Director of CALS Business Services following Sheree Avent’s departure. The individual who steps into this role will provide critical leadership over the CALS Business Operations’ Accounting Services and Business Liaison Team units. The Search Committee has narrowed its search to three finalists and has invited each to participate in an on-campus series of interviews. As part of their visit, each finalist will make a 15-20 minute presentation in an open forum which describes their interest in the position, leadership style, and vision for the organization. This presentation will be followed by a Q&A session. In total, each event will be approximately 45 minutes.

Please consider attending these forums as you are interested and able. A survey soliciting feedback will be available after each forum event.

Additional information regarding each candidate, the job description, and a link to the feedback surveys (once available) can be found on the Director of CALS Business Services Recruitment Webpage.
