Dear UFV Community,
On behalf of the Board, I sincerely thank the 13 members of the Presidential Search Committee, as well as the many UFV students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members who invested their time to contribute to this process. Everyone involved, including our chosen search firm, Boyden Global Executive Search, did an admirable job on all aspects of the search.
A candidate was selected, but during the final stages, due to unforeseen personal circumstances, the candidate has chosen to withdraw. The Board of Governors will re-initiate the search for the President & Vice-Chancellor immediately, continuing with Boyden.
As we expect this search to take some time, the Board intends to appoint an interim President & Vice-Chancellor, effective July 1. We expect to announce the interim President in the coming weeks.
Again, my deepest appreciation to everyone involved in this process. For more information, please visit https://blogs.ufv.ca/presidential-search.
Mr. John Pankratz
Chair, UFV Board of Governors
