HOUGHTON, MI-- Members of the public will have an opportunity to participate in the search for a new Michigan Technological University president.
Town hall meetings are being held Wednesday and Thursday on campus to gather input from the university community and residents. Two other meetings are being held downstate.
President Glen Mroz is stepping down at the end of June 2018 to return to the classroom. He’s served in the top post more than 13 years.
A presidential search committee has been formed and search firm Storbeck/Pimentel & Associates has been hired to assist. Consultants will be on campus to preside over the town hall meetings.
An open meeting for the university community, alumni, and local residents starts at 9:30 a.m. Thursday at the Memorial Union Ballroom.
The search committee plans to interview candidates over the winter and have two to four semi-finalist candidates in February.
