Update to Presidential Search

01/13/2023 8:50 am

As promised to our Rockford University colleagues, alum, community and friends, this provides a brief update to the search for our next President.

We’re fortunate that Rockford University received a healthy interest in the search for its next President.  We drew applications from 64 candidates with wide ranging experience and backgrounds – from academia and business in both national and international roles. Before the end of 2022 and the beginning 2023, the Presidential Search Committee spent numerous hours reviewing and vetting the applicant pool, narrowing it down to its top 11 candidates to continue in the process.

The Committee looks forward to the next steps which include interviews and additional insight to select the next President of the University.

We will continue to update you as the effort progresses.

With RU Pride,

Rebecca Epperson
Chair, Rockford University Board of Trustees
Chair, Rockford University Presidential Search Committee
