Chancellor Venkat Reddy appointed a 14-member committee to assist in the search for a new vice chancellor for administration and finance.
Tom Christensen, provost, will chair the committee of UCCS faculty, staff and student representatives and a representative from CU Boulder. The committee is charged with reviewing candidates and recommending finalists to replace Susan Szpyrka, senior vice chancellor, Administration and Finance. In June, Szpyrka announced her plan to retire effective Dec. 31 after almost 34 years of university service.
DHR International, a search firm, will assist the committee. Members of the search committee and DHR representatives will meet Aug. 23. Faculty and staff interested in nominating an individual for the position should contact DHR at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Reddy hopes to announce finalists for the position by the end of the fall semester.
