UT System updates UTSA Presidential search status
University of Texas System Executive Vice Chancellor Steve Leslie issued this statement today on the UTSA Presidential search:
(April 11, 2017) -- Over the last 16 months, the University of Texas System has engaged in searches for three new presidents at UT academic institutions. With the UT San Antonio presidential search, we have heard from many engaged individuals, including members of the UTSA faculty and civic and business leaders, who care deeply about the future of UTSA and its impact on San Antonio and Texas. They have articulated what they want to see to propel UTSA to be highly competitive as an emerging top tier institution, and we are grateful for their input.
While the presidential search advisory committee has worked to recommend a very impressive slate of national candidates, we want to ensure we have conducted the most in-depth search possible and that we do not rush our efforts. It has been almost two decades since UTSA has had a presidential search. We want to be as selective as possible, in the best interest of the institution's future, by reaching out to a broad group of potential candidates whose perspectives and experiences at top institutions will serve UTSA well. Therefore the UT System and the search advisory committee plan to continue conversations with additional potential candidates over the next few weeks or months, and we look forward to recommending candidates to the Board of Regents immediately afterward.
