The search for the next Leonard Sandridge has officially began. Sandridge, UVA‘s current Chief Operating Officer (COO), has worked at the University for more than 40 years. He announced his retirement last year, but agreed to stay on as a consultant to ease President Teresa Sullivan’s transition. He will retire in July.
It is interesting to see how searches are done in varying markets and Higher Education is very special and unique in their methods. If you follow the links when you read the entire article you will see that the education world strives to promote involvement from all facets of the university and the size of the search committee brings that to light.
I wish UVA good luck in their search and I also wish Spencer Stuart the best in this effort.
