The following are tentative dates for the five candidates:

On each of the dates above, students and alumni are invited to attend the Student and Alumni Town Hall, from 10:00 AM to 10:45 AM, in Classroom D. Throughout this process, you are encouraged to send your thoughts and opinions by confidential email to provost@pepperdine.edu.

I would like to thank the search committee for their continuing time, insights, and hard work evaluating these candidates. As a reminder, the committee includes Babette Boliek, Bob Cochran, Rick Cupp, Michael Feltner, Derek Muller, Edna Powell, and Al Sturgeon.
