Presidential Search Leadership Statement

Note: The Leadership Statement linked below is the most recent version of the statement.

Dear Members of the University Community,

On behalf of the Presidential Search Advisory Committee and Board of Visitors, I am proud to share the Presidential Leadership Statement that will be used to cultivate the pool of candidates for the next president of Mary Washington.

The feedback from the open forums on campus at the end of August and the online stakeholder input forms, along with input from the committee and Board of Visitors, were used to create the document.  Mr. Martin Baker of Baker and Associates LLC did an excellent job in facilitating the conversation at the forums and capturing the voice of our university community throughout the document.  I am grateful to each of you who participated in the process.

The presidential search website will continue to update the university committee on the search process and can be located at:
