Search Committee Members

Selecting a new president is one of the most important events in the life of a college. That’s why Dickinson’s Board of Trustees selected representatives from all parts of the Dickinson community to serve as members of the Presidential Search Committee.

Committee members are faculty, students, administrators, alumni and trustees. Trustee Jim Chambers ’78 is chair of the committee.

They will be updating the community at each step of the process, through regular emails, updates to the website and in-person sessions and conversations.
