Board of Regents appoints members of Pittsburg State Presidential Search Committee

(Topeka, Kan.) – The Kansas Board of Regents (KBOR) today appointed 26 members to the committee that will assist and advise the Board in the search for the next president of Pittsburg State University (PSU). The search committee includes representation from university students, faculty, staff, alumni and the southeast Kansas community.

Last month the Board named Rick Webb as chair of the search committee. Webb is a Pittsburg State graduate and Executive Chairman of Watco, LLC.

“The members of the search committee bring a wealth of experience and diverse backgrounds to this search process,” said KBOR Chair Cheryl Harrison-Lee. “They possess an excellent understanding of Pittsburg State University and the leadership skills that will be required from the next president. The Regents are eager to work with this outstanding committee throughout this search process.”

Search committee member bios are available here.

In addition, the Regents approved a formal committee charge.
