ASU's Search for Jonesboro Chancellor Underway

FEBRUARY 7, 2006 - Posted at 1:37 p.m. CST

 

JONESBORO, AR - Arkansas State University's search for its first Jonesboro campus chancellor is underway.

The process will involve many participants during various stages over the next few months.

One of the first steps in the search will be a series of "town hall forums" where students, faculty, staff and other interested individuals may learn more about the purpose for the new position and to give their opinions on the type of individual the school should seek.

The title of chancellor is common in higher education, but it is new to many at ASU-Jonesboro.  While ASU campuses at Beebe, Mountain Home, and Newport all have a chancellor, or campus executive, Dr. Les Wyatt has filled that role on the Jonesboro campus in addition to his duties as president of the ASU system.

Board of Trustees Chair Florine Tousant Milligan of Forrest City said in December that the time has come for ASU to differentiate the duties of the system president from the campus chief executive.  The Board passed a resolution at its December meeting authorizing the division of duties.

As campus chief executive, the new chancellor will focus on carrying out the goals articulated in the campus's strategic plan, which was adopted last year.

The town hall forums will be held February 15-17, with each session running about 50 minutes.  Participants may choose from among 17 different sessions, starting at various times throughout the day in the board room of the Dean B. Ellis library.  Late afternoon sessions start at 5 p.m. on February 15 at St. Bernards Auditorium in Jonesboro and on February 16 in the Student Union's Mockingbird Room.  The final session is set for noon on February 17 at the Jonesboro Regional Chamber of Commerce. 

The public may register on for their preferred time on-line at http://www.astate.edu/chancellorsearch
