Listening Sessions Schedule, September 2017

Listening Sessions Overview

September 29, 2017

During the first two weeks of September, members of the Saint Mary’s Board of Trustees met with various school constituencies invited to a series of “listening sessions” designed to gather perspectives, concerns, hopes, and comments about the role of a new President for Saint Mary’s College High School.  Faculty, Staff, and Student Leadership met with Board members on the dates below, and on September 13, a group comprised of current and alumni parents and alumni from a wide range of years, gathered in the school library to share their thoughts with a group of Trustees who are themselves Saint Mary’s alumni and alumni parents.  In addition, an online Listening Survey was made available on the Saint Mary’s web site, open to everyone interested in the Search process.  The results of the listening sessions and survey greatly informed further conversations among the Board’s Position Profile Writing Committee, Search Committee, and the entire Board, and between the Trustees and current Saint Mary’s President and Principal, Brother Edmond and Dr. Imperial.

Following final review of the President Position Profile draft created during the Summer months and into early Fall, the Profile was ready for publication.  On September 25 and 26, the Profile, with application information, was posted locally, regionally, and nationally on Lasallian, Catholic, educational, leadership, and professional web sites, and was shared directly with a wide network of Lasallian and Catholic educators and institutions.  The Board invites Saint Mary’s constituents to share the Profile with anyone you think may have an interest in the position.  The deadline for applications is November 30, 2017.  Thank you to all the members of the extended Saint Mary’s community who participated in the Trustees’ President Search Listening Sessions and in the online Listening Survey.  Your sharing of your time, perspectives, and thoughts is invaluable.  Please continue to visit the President Search section of the Saint Mary’s web site for news and information.  Questions?  Comments?
