July 12, 2011 – The Utah State Board of Regents and the University of Utah have
launched a presidential search Website to keep the public informed during the process of
selecting the U of U’s next president. Visitors can log onto to
provide nominations, commentary and input into the search process, as well as receive up-to-date information on timeline, updates and constituent meetings.

“We are eager to provide the public with a resource where they can find current and complete information regarding the search for the next The University of Utah president,” said Regent Nolan Karras, presidential search committee Chairman. “Finding a new leader for Utah’s flagship university is a process in which we want to broadly invite people to be involved. This website will enable our constituents to be informed and participate in a user-friendly way.” The website also provides email addresses for direct commentary and questions, a list of the search committee members and other information to provide not only transparency, but also public integration and understanding surrounding this exciting time.

Additionally, the website features a calendar listing several constituent meetings planned in an effort to solicit broad input regarding the qualifications of an ideal candidate. While these meetings will target some specific constituent groups (i.e. faculty, students, staff, etc), each is open to the public. More meetings will be added as they are confirmed. For a complete listing of these meetings, beginning Friday August 12, 2011, log onto the website and click “Timeline & Updates” in the left-hand column.
