Dear OHIO students, faculty and staff: 

Three finalists for the position of Vice President for University Communication and Marketing will interview on Ohio University’s Athens Campus beginning April 12.

As part of the interview process, the University community will have an opportunity to interact with the candidates during open forums where they will deliver a brief presentation and answer questions from students, faculty and staff. A separate forum will also be provided specifically for faculty.

Open forums for all students, faculty and staff will take place on the following dates and times. All of these events will also be live-streamed to anyone with a University ID and password, and ASL interpreters will be provided. (To request other accommodations to attend this event, please contact Kay Sutphin, vujaklij@ohio.edu, no later than April 11):

Feedback on each candidate will be solicited anonymously of all students, faculty and staff via an online survey.

The search firm is allotting time for finalists to notify their employers of this opportunity. We will share more information about each candidate in the coming days.

Your input into the search for Vice President for University Communication and Marketing is vitally important to the success of the search. I encourage you to put the above forum opportunities on your calendar and plan to participate in our on-campus interview process.
