University community can submit input or nominations and find information such as the planned hiring timeline.
The University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) has launched a presidential search website where the University community can find information such as the planned hiring timeline or submit input or nominations to the search committee.
Jay A. Perman, MD, who had been UMB’s president for nearly a decade, became chancellor of the University System of Maryland (USM) in January. In May, Perman announced that the USM Board of Regents had approved the 16-member search committee, which is chaired by William T. Wood, JD, USM regent and University of Maryland Baltimore Foundation Board of Trustees member. National executive search firm Isaacson, Miller is aiding the search.
According to the presidential profile, the University seeks a president who “will advance excellence in all of UMB’s missions against a backdrop of dramatic change in education, healthcare, and society. More than this, the President will lead the campus community in addressing these broad social challenges head on.”
Two virtual town halls were held in July to get input from the UMB community.
The search committee plans to select finalists to present to Perman and the USM regents in late August, with the hiring planned in September.
