Three finalists have been named for the position of vice president for the Institute for Public Service. Interviews will begin on October 29 and conclude on November 3.

As part of their visits, each candidate will lead a public forum in both Knoxville and Nashville and will respond to questions following each presentation. All forums will be webcast and archived for later viewing. Candidates will be asked to describe their vision for the Institute for Public Service and what steps they would take to implement those plans.

The job description and resumes for finalists are available on the search website. Links to webcasts of the public forums will be added soon. I also encourage you to share feedback about the finalists following each forum using surveys available on the search website.
