Presidential Search Update: Formation of Faculty Advisory Committee

The Presidential Search Committee is excited to announce that a Faculty Advisory Committee has been formed to support the search efforts. The new committee was established through cooperation with the faculty senates of the Daytona Beach, Prescott, and Worldwide campuses.

Following a review of the senates’ nominations, the Board, as announced through its Chairman, has confirmed the following appointments to the Faculty Advisory Committee:

  • Daytona Beach:  Dr. Remzi Seker
  • Prescott:  Dr. Darrel Smith
  • Worldwide:  Dr. Beverly Wood

This committee will enter into nondisclosure and confidentiality agreements, and follow the same code of ethics as the Presidential Search Committee.  The committee members will participate in the interviews of the finalists and make their recommendations directly to the Chairman of the Board and their respective Board of Trustee Faculty Delegate within executive session.  The Board’s faculty delegation will be present during the final candidate interviews with the Board, and involved in the open discussion regarding each candidate.
