Presidential Search Update

On Thursday, January 22, 2015, the Presidential Search Committee (PSC) conducted an overall review of its pool of candidates for the presidency of Hellenic College, Inc.

The PSC is pleased to update the HCHC community as to the current state of our search process. We are delighted to inform you that 36 nominations and applications were received, representing a diverse field of skilled and experienced individuals from among the clergy, academia, and industry. The PSC is most gratified by the level of interest and the talent pool represented by all nominees and applicants.

The PSC has determined that 19 applicants are viable candidates for the next round of screening. During February, all 19 candidates will be fully vetted, with the process including personal interviews.  

The search process is proceeding according to our timetable with the objective to announce the 21st President of HCHC by Commencement 2015.
