We would like to thank the Stetson community for your input whether it was through meetings or surveys, as well as everyone involved in producing the prospectus. We believe this document reflects both our shared values and vision and our diverse perspectives. Ultimately, the prospectus is intended to capture the spirit and essence of our university, to communicate the opportunity to a wide universe of individuals, and to generate a robust pool of nominations and applications for the position.

In the coming months, we will be working diligently with Witt/Kieffer to build and evaluate a strong pool of candidates. Please check back for periodic updates on our progress. We also encourage the entire community to submit nominations or suggestions for potential candidates to the Witt/Kieffer consultants supporting this search at

Thank you again for your input and support of our work.
