Listening Sessions

The Presidential Search Committee and the Search Advisory Committee are eager to receive input from the University community on their vision for the University’s future and the qualities we should seek in our next president. Listening Sessions are scheduled for students, faculty, staff, the Jesuit community, Leadership Team, and alumni.

All students are invited to attend either of the Student Listening Sessions, all faculty are invited to attend any of the Faculty Listening Sessions, likewise for staff and alumni. Participants are asked to make every effort to attend the sessions that have been designated for their constituency. The sessions will be facilitated by the particular constituency’s representatives on the Search Advisory Committee and by search consultants Isaacson Miller.

Before attending, Listening Session participants are encouraged to think about these key questions:

  • What are the most important things the President needs to do in the next 3-5 years?
  • What are the measures of success for the next President?
  • How should USF be fundamentally different five years from now?
  • What about USF should not change?
