Regents set Oct. 11 presidential search town hall at UCCS

Chancellor Town Hall

The CU Board of Regents will hold a town hall meeting at UCCS Oct. 11 to gather insight and feedback from members of the university community and the public regarding the search for CU’s next president. The town hall will be at 1-2:30 p.m. in University Center 303.

Regents Heidi Ganahl and Irene Griego, search committee co-chairs, will host the meeting and gather input.

“It’s important that we hear from the university’s constituents as we start the process to select CU’s next president,” Ganahl and Griego said in a statement. “We want to know the qualities they would like to see in CU’s next president and hear about the issues facing CU, our state and nation.”

CU’s next president will replace Bruce D. Benson, who has led the university since 2008 and has announced he will retire from the position in July. The board is soliciting nominations for the search committee and is in the process of hiring a search firm.

In addition to the in-person meetings, the Board of Regents invites electronic feedback on the search from constituents at

UCCS will be the first campus in the town hall series. Regents will visit CU Boulder Oct. 16, and CU Anschutz Medical Campus and CU Denver Oct. 18.
