Hello UPI,
You have probably seen the email below regarding the open forum for the presidential search.

At our membership meeting last week, we discussed the importance of the UPI having an active role in this process, and I was hoping we can get a strong UPI contingent (maybe in green) tomorrow to address issues like those that came up at our meeting: for example, what happens if we put significant work into Forward 150 this year and a new president comes along and decides to move in a new direction? What will this mean for work, morale, serving students, etc.?

Can you let me know if you can make it to the open forum tomorrow, and as a group can we strategize about how to take part in the search? Thanks, Tim

RE: Presidential Search Open Forum tomorrow at 2 p.m.

The Executive Committee of the University’s Board of Trustees will host the second of two open forums / listening sessions for the presidential search that is currently underway. This event is open to all faculty, staff and students. Led by executive search firm Greenwood / Asher & Associates, Inc., this event will be an opportunity to share feedback in person. The Board will also accept feedback online at neiu.edu/feedback. The Forum is scheduled for tomorrow, August 30, at 2 p.m. in the Main Campus Auditorium.

Greenwood / Asher & Associates asks all attendees to think of answers to the following questions. They invite you to share your answers at the event or online.
What are the attributes that are important to you in a President?
What do you want your President to accomplish during the next three years?
What opportunities are on the horizon?
What do you love about Northeastern?
Thank you.
