Campus Community Invited to Consultative Sessions for Chief Search

Dear Students, Faculty and Staff:

With the search for the University’s new chief, campus safety and emergency management services (CSEMS) underway, members of the campus community are invited to attend a consultative session with members of the search committee and our partner, Spelman Johnson, on Thursday, April 29, from 4 to 4:45 p.m. ET and Friday, April 30, from 1 to 1:45 p.m. ET. Two sessions will be offered to allow multiple opportunities to attend and participate; it is not necessary to attend both sessions. Those interested can register for either session. A Zoom link will be shared with registrants prior to the session.

These sessions will give students, faculty and staff the opportunity to provide input on the characteristics, experiences and background you feel should be included in deliberations on the University’s new chief. Specifically, the committee would like to hear your thoughts on the challenges and opportunities facing the Syracuse University community, higher education and the incoming chief.

If you are unable to attend the consultative session, you may also submit feedback or nominate a candidate for the new chief by emailing

We look forward to the feedback and collaboration of the campus community in conducting a robust national search for our new chief.
