Bellarmine President Search - Please Provide Feedback on Finalists

To Our Bellarmine Community,
As the public phase of our presidential search process comes to a close, I am reaching out one last time to encourage you to complete the survey providing feedback on the Finalists. This process was designed to allow for community input and your voice will be critical in the next stage of evaluation. The survey will close on Friday, March 10, at 5:00 PM.
Previous announcements have referenced the potential for a fourth Finalist, with a public forum scheduled for this Thursday. After much discernment, that Finalist has elected to withdraw from the process. Accordingly, the public phase of the search will conclude today with Dr. Kelly Goodsell.
In the coming weeks, the Search Committee will digest all of the data gathered through the interviews, surveys, and reference checks, and then enter into its discernment process in an effort to make a recommendation to the Board of Directors. A healthy discernment requires the time and space to listen to the movement of the Spirit and uncover God’s intention. For that reason, the Search Committee has not established a deadline for making its recommendation to the Board of Directors. I will keep the community informed of future developments as they unfold. Until then, I ask for your prayers and patience as we navigate the next phase of the process.
Gavin O’Brien
Search Committee Chair
