Baylor University's search for a President will continue into mid-November.

The University put out a press release Friday stating it has completed more than 80 hours of "listening sessions" with faculty, staff, students, alumni, friends and University administrators.

The executive search firm of Heidrick and Struggles, is also helping the search committee.

“We are deeply grateful to Baylor faculty, staff, students, alumni and friends of the University, who have shared their important perspectives with the committee. Their input is invaluable, and we continue to listen to all thoughts and ideas, as we together move forward in the process of selecting Baylor University’s next president,” said Bob Brewton, B.B.A. ’74, chair of the Presidential Search Committee. “We also welcome the expertise of Heidrick & Struggles. They are an exceptional organization, international in scope, and they will conduct a very thorough and far-reaching search process for the University’s 15th president.”

To date, the search committee has conducted:

Six external Listening Sessions around the state during October, with two more planned in San Antonio and Austin on October 25th.

Additional listening sessions are planned this month. Individual input also may be made online through Nov. 18th.
