Listening Session for the “Consultative Committee for Selection of a President”

Wed., Sept. 22, 1:00pm ET

Registration link via Zoom

All PPSA members are encouraged to participate in this special meeting.  Our featured guest will be Stacey Lopez, the staff representative to the Consultative Committee for the Selection of a President.  Dr. Lopez will receive feedback from Penn staff that she will convey to the Committee and inform its deliberations.

During the session, participants are invited to address the following question specifically: What do you see as the major challenges for the University over the likely tenure of the next President?  (Specifically, what not-necessarily-obvious, structural changes should the next University President make in order to tangibly improve Penn?)

You may alternatively use this two-question form to share written responses to the above question with PPSA leadership.  (Identifying information is not requested via the form, and your response will be aggregated with others before it is shared with Dr. Lopez.)  The form will be available until Noon on Wednesday, September 22.

For reference, linked here is the (March 2004) report from the previous Consultative Committee that led to the selection of Dr. Amy Gutmann as University President.

The Consultative Committee has also made available a “Community Survey,” however submissions through that survey are not known to PPSA.  By sharing information via PPSA’s form or during the listening session, PPSA can amplify the voices of Penn staff in the deliberation process.
