Update on Presidential Search

Release date: February 05, 2014

Dear Goucher Community Members:

During the last several months, the Presidential Search Committee, in close consultation with the firm of Witt/Kieffer, has worked to identify and assess candidates whose experience and principles align with the characteristics sought by Goucher College. Drawing from a pool of highly qualified applicants, we have narrowed the search down to three outstanding candidates.

On-campus interviews for the finalists will take place February 11-19. Each candidate will have an opportunity to tour the campus and to meet with faculty, staff, students, trustees, and alumnae/i. A more detailed schedule for each candidate is being prepared now and will be shared with you as soon as it is completed. To maintain the confidential integrity of the search, the name and bio of each applicant will not be released until one day prior to the candidate’s visit.

We are extremely pleased with the progress of the search and look forward to this final phase. On behalf of the entire search committee, thank you for your continuing support and assistance in helping us find Goucher’s next president. 


Becki Kurdle ’61
Chair, Presidential Search Committee
