Committee Reviews Applications

Dear Members of the Agnes Scott Community,

Today, we write with an update on the presidential search. The search committee has continued its listening tour by holding additional sessions for alumnae and for students. As with all our meetings, we have been delighted by the strong support and interest shown by our stakeholders, and we deeply appreciate the views they have shared.

The search has drawn an unusually high number of nominations from members of the Agnes Scott community and educational leaders nationwide. Well over 100 people sent in nominations and nearly 150 individuals were nominated. We have been gratified by the response.

The search committee has been busy reviewing more than 80 applications received from around the country and the globe. We have been pleased with the strength and breadth of the pool and have enjoyed learning more about these talented candidates who are eager to come to Agnes Scott. Recently, the search committee met with our consultants to discuss our applicant pool in depth. After careful review and discussion, the committee identified a diverse group of compelling candidates to meet in person. These meetings will take place in the coming weeks.

As the search continues, we will be back in touch with further updates. Thank you for your interest in this important effort.

With best wishes,

Deb Harris Painter ’75 Elizabeth H. Noe ’86
