(Host) The University of Vermont expects to spend about $300,000 to find a replacement for President Dan Fogel by March of next year.
A 20-member Presidential Search Committee held its first meeting yesterday.
Fogel plans to step down from the presidency at the end of June 2012. After a sabbatical, he will join the English department.
The search committee is being led by Trustee Chairman Robert Cioffi.
The Burlington Free Press says the schedule calls for the trustees to interview eight to 12 semi-finalists in November. The finalists will be brought to campus in January or February with a decision planned for March.
Cioffi says that until the finalists are announced the names of the candidates will be kept confidential.
