FAMU to Host Forums, Develop Web Resources to Gather Public Feedback on Presidential Search
Florida A&M University today announced that it will schedule a series of forums and will create web resources to gain public feedback on its presidential search. The FAMU Board of Trustees says in a release it values the perspective of constituents, and hopes to have insight in choosing the institution’s next president, a task they hope to complete by July 2013.
We believe that it is important to hear from our supporters, especially the faculty, students and alumni about the qualities they seek in a new leader for FAMU, said FAMU Trustee Karl White, chair of the FAMU Presidential Search Committee. We will use this information to help develop the presidential search criteria.
One of the tools the board will use to gather data is a survey that will become a part of the new website. The survey would provide the board with feedback regarding the qualities that are most important. Areas of focus on the survey will be personality and style; personal experiences and skills; vision and mission; and challenges and opportunities.
Focus groups are scheduled for Oct. 11 on the main campus and Oct. 27 in Orlando at the FAMU College of Law. The website will launch on October 6.
