Board Of Trustees Continues Search For New PResident
This week, the Liberty University Board of Trustees will meet to move forward with the search for the next President and Chancellor of Liberty University.
After the board appointed Jerry Prevo as acting president last fall, the board decided to restructure the head leadership positions, a move that would differentiate the Chancellor, spiritual leader, position from the President, who would oversee the administration of the university.
The November meeting also established a search committee to fill the positions. The committee was tasked with outlining job descriptions approving candidates in the search process.
Earlier this year, the Executive Committee on the board sent out a statement in support of Prevo, ensuring students, faculty and staff that he is able to be referred to as President in his acting position. The statement comes after the board asked Prevo to utilize his time in the position “to reset the spiritual focus and emphasis at the University.”
The committee will gather again during their end of the year meeting this fall.
