Faculty Senate Resolution
Presidential Search


Whereas, the University of South Alabama has recently emerged from a difficult and painful period of transition in its leadership, and

Whereas, the student population and faculty have suffered the uncertainty of numerous unfilled key administrative posts including Vice President for Academic Affairs, Vice President of Medical Affairs/Dean of the Medical School, Director of the Libraries, and Director of Development, and

Whereas, the ability to fill many of these positions is likely to be contingent upon the appointment of a permanent University President, and

Whereas, delays in initiating a formal search for the most qualified candidate for University President only serves to continue the current state of abeyance in developing the academic core of this University, and

Whereas, the University can best achieve its potential through a wide-ranging search for the best possible candidate,

Be It Resolved that the University of South Alabama Faculty Senate, in the spirit of moving the process forward, respectfully requests that the duly appointed Search Committee communicate to the University community its timetable for completing the various stages of the search process.


Adopted Oct. 21, 1998


University of South Alabama  -  Faculty Senate -  Mobile, AL 36688-0002
