Dear UHCL Colleagues -
I am pleased to announce the appointment of the Search Committee for the next University
of Houston-Clear Lake President. This Committee will be chaired by Richard Walker,
Ed.D., Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs and Enrollment Services, UH System. He
will be assisted in this process by the search firm of Greenwood/Asher & Associates,
Inc. My expectation is that most of the Committee's work will be done during Spring
2017 with the hope of filling the position by Fall 2017.
The Committee's role is advisory in nature and is charged with (a) developing a strong
and diverse pool of candidates, (b) screening eligible applicants, (c) inviting finalists
for campus interviews and (d) providing its assessment of the strengths and weaknesses
of each interviewee. I have asked the Committee to seek your input in completing its
I request that you please help the Committee in creating a strong and diverse pool
of candidates by nominating qualified individuals. I have asked the Committee chair
to keep you informed about the process and respectfully request that you meet the
candidates when invited for interviews. Your input and guidance will help us find
a leader who will continue to transform and elevate UHCL and the UH System.
Thank you for your interest and engagement.
Chancellor, University of Houston System
