Report from the Chair of the Search Committee for Chancellor, Urbana-Champaign Campus
President Ikenberry introduced Professor Jesse G. Delia to the members of the board. Professor Delia has been selected to chair the search committee for a chancellor for the Urbana campus. He met with the board to discuss how he planned to proceed with the task of identifying candidates for the position of chancellor. President Ikenberry indicated to the board that in his letter charging the committee to initiate such a search he had told the members to be aggressive in their attempts to identify likely prospects for this position, noting that often the best candidates need to be urged to accept nomination for such a position. Further, the president urged the committee to search particularly diligently for women and minority group members. The president emphasized that he expected a list of at least five individuals as candidates the committee would recommend.
