BethSealThe search for the next President of Bethany College is progressing on schedule.  The search committee met most recently on April 1 and selected a group of candidates whose background and experience ­seem especially consistent with the qualities and qualifications established for the search. At this time, committee members are checking references for these candidates.

The committee will meet again in mid-April to discuss the results of reference calls and to select a smaller number of candidates who will be invited to confidential preliminary interviews with the search committee. On completion of that round of interviews, the committee will select two or three finalist candidates who will be invited to participate in more extensive on-campus interviews with a broad range of Bethany constituents. These interviews will occur during the first week of May. The Board of Directors is expecting to receive a Search Committee recommendation during its May 13-14 meeting.

“We are pleased with the candidate pool and have every reason to believe our search will come to a successful conclusion in early May,” Search Committee Chair Sean Patty said. “The committee will continue to stay in touch with the campus and Lindsborg community throughout the process.”
