Community survey to aid presidential search committee

Members of the Penn College family are invited to participate in a survey about the ongoing national search for the successor to President Davie Jane Gilmour, who announced her retirement plans in May. The brief survey will solicit confidential input from students, faculty/staff, alumni, parents, administrators, board members and the community to aid the search committee’s mission.

Questions will touch on a range of topics, including opportunities and potential challenges for the next president, desired leadership capabilities, and academic and executive experience. Feedback from stakeholders will be shared with the 18-member committee charged with selecting a new president during the first half of next year. The new president – who will follow Gilmour’s nearly 25-year tenure – will take office on July 1, 2022.

Penn College is partnering with Storbeck Search, which specializes in hiring higher education leadership, to identify and announce a successor between January and June 2022.
