Dear Members of the University of Washington Community:

As some of you may know, Vice Provost David Szatmary of UW Educational Outreach is retiring. I have appointed an advisory search committee, with Senior Vice Provost Jerry Baldasty as chair, and UW Libraries Senior Associate Dean Cynthia Fugate as co-chair, to help me in identifying candidates for this very important position. You can find the charge letter and the committee's membership on the Provost's home page.

Regan Gough, Principal at Isaacson, Miller, will assist with the search, and the firm is now accepting applications and nominations. We encourage you to take part in the search process by submitting all nominations and applications materials directly to Regan at Regan and her team will immediately begin the confidential review of applications and will continue until the position is filled. The full position description is now posted on UW Hires.

We are aware that it is very likely that our finalists will visit campus during the summer, when many of you cannot be on campus on a daily basis. Consequently, we will create Tegrity videos of all public presentations, which will be available for those unable to get to campus, and we will provide feedback channels so that any and all can weigh in on the finalists. As you will see from the advisory search committee roster, we included faculty, staff and students—with specific representatives named by the Faculty Senate, by GPSS, and by ASUW.

The search committee welcomes your questions, comments, and assistance in recruiting the best candidates to the UW for this critical search. Your participation in this process is integral to the success of this search, and to continuing the tradition of excellence and innovation we have all come to expect of our educational offerings through UWEO.
