Resumes and letters of interest were submitted by 34 candidates as of the July 14 deadline. The search committee reviewed the materials and met last week to discuss the candidates, ultimately selecting nine semifinalists to move forward in the process. Each semifinalist will have a Zoom interview with members of the search committee, complete a Predictive Index assessment, and participate in a detailed conversation with the search consultant, Jack Hall, partner with CarterBaldwin Executive Search. The search committee will convene again later this month to select three to five finalists who they will interview in person in early September. The new president of SAIS will be announced in late September.
