The Presidential Search Committee held highly successful Listening Sessions on campus February 28 and 29. Dr. Ann Hasselmo, Senior Consultant with our Search partner, Academic Search, and Committee representatives were highly impressed by the contributions of the College Community and the profound desire expressed to continued excellence in all aspects of the College. Involvement in these Sessions is crucial to developing the ultimate profile of the most desired candidate to lead FSC into the future. We are most grateful for these enthusiastic, productive engagements.
