After conducting 29 listening sessions and town halls for stakeholders across the University of South Carolina System between June and late August of 2021, and after reviewing almost 6,000 responses to an online survey, the Presidential Candidate Search Committee introduced a presidential leadership profile [pdf] in early September.
The leadership profile:
- Describes the University System and its institutions
- Forecasts the opportunities awaiting the next President of the University of South Carolina
- Outlines the traits and qualifications desired of candidates for President
The Search Committee will use this leadership profile to advertise the job of President, to seek nominations and applications, and to serve as an initial summary of the job before applicants speak with the Search Committee and with executive search firm R. William Funk & Associates.
