Search Committee

The University of Arkansas System President, Dr. Donald Bobbitt, appointed a Chancellor Search Committee who will work to identify qualified candidates for the position of chancellor.  Upon completion of the campus interviews and compilation of input from stakeholder groups, the committee will provide information on the qualified candidates to Dr. Bobbitt for his consideration and deliberation by the Board of Trustees.

The work will be guided by a Search Committee Code of Ethics. PDF document (PDF will open in a new tab)
