UPDATE: January 22, 2021

During the weeks of January 25 and February 1, members of the Presidential Search Committee and Alberto Pimentel, Managing Partner with Storbeck/Pimentel & Associates, will host a series of virtual open forums with faculty, staff, students, and other important university constituents. This is an opportunity for participants to share their thoughts and comments regarding the qualities and characteristics sought in the new President. Information gathered during these sessions will inform the development of the position profile and assist the Search Committee in finalizing the criteria by which candidates will be evaluated.

Constituent group meetings with the Search Committee and executive search firm are scheduled for the dates and times listed. Zoom meeting links are provided for each session.

Information that the Search Committee and Mr. Pimentel collect will be used to develop the Florida State University Presidential Position Profile and the advertisement. We hope you will be able to participate in this very important process.
