MONTPELIER — The newly established Vermont State University (VSU) is in search of a new president following the unexpected departure of the university’s first leader within a year of his tenure. The search is being conducted by the Vermont State Colleges Board of Trustees Ad Hoc Search Committee, which is dedicated to identifying suitable replacements. On July 19, the search committee received an update from the search firm, Storbeck Search, about potential candidates for the president’s role and discussed the next steps in a closed session. The committee had previously met on July 6th. According to the meeting documents, Storbeck Search suggested providing 2-3 candidates for an interim president role if needed. The firm also offered to assist with due diligence such as reference checks and background checks, if the Board identifies its own finalists.
