During their visits to campus, the finalists also will meet with UW’s Executive Council, deans and directors, among other activities.

The Board of Trustees seeks public input on the candidates before it fulfills its responsibility to select the new president. People are invited to share their thoughts and perspectives with the board by answering online questionnaires that have been established for each finalist at the following sites:
