The Concordia College Board of Regents named 13 people to serve on the search committee for the 11th president of the college. The committee includes regents, faculty members, the student body president, a college administrator and a representative from the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
“This thoughtful and talented group of College stakeholders will be dedicated to finding a strong leader to build on President Jolicoeur’s legacy,” says Ron Offutt, Board of Regents chair. “Concordia is in a position of strength that will no doubt attract an exceptional pool of candidates.”
