Who Do You Think Should be Penn State’s Next President?

To all the Rodney Erickson fans out there: the university is searching for his successor and wants to hear your opinions on who should be the next president of Penn State.

Erickson is set to step down on June 30, 2014 when his contract expires. In the meantime, Isaacson, Miller — an executive search firm employed by Penn State in its search for Erickson’s successor — is holding three forums to gather “feedback and input from the University community” regarding the “traits and characteristics that the University’s next president should embody” and “the opportunities and challenges the next president will face.” These forums will be open to students, faculty, and staff.

The first two forums will be held at University Park on March 21 — one from 1-2 p.m. in the HUB Auditorium (Room 117) and the other from 6-7 p.m. in 105 Forum.

The third forum will take place on March 22 from 2:15-3:15 p.m. and is open to the Commonwealth Campus participation via online stream; according to Penn State News, “information and details for participation will be sent directly to the campuses.” If you are at University Park, you can attend the March 22 forum in person at the Foster Auditorium (Room 102) in Paterno Library.

Can’t make any of the three forums? No worries — according to Penn State News, there will be other opportunities “in the near future” for you to offer your two cents on who Penn State’s next president should be. Also, a “presidential search website” is in the works, so you’ll be able to get involved with the search for Erickson’s successor online.

What do you want to see from Penn State’s next president? Let us know in the comment section below.

With no canning weekends held this year and canvassing eventually suspended as well, this year’s total is a testament to how committed THON volunteers truly are.
