Members of the University Community:
As the search for the next President of the University continues, the Board of Trustees amended today the University By-Laws in order to permit the Board of Regents to expand the search beyond qualified priests to include qualified, practicing Roman Catholic lay persons.
The number one goal for our Board and the Presidential Search Committee has, and continues to be, to identify the very best individual to serve as the next leader of Seton Hall. By expanding the candidate pool, we will access an even wider array of high-caliber nominees with the right skills, personal attributes, and leadership experience for this position.
We are extremely grateful to Dr. Mary Meehan, who is doing a tremendous job as interim president in leading Seton Hall forward and supporting our Catholic mission as we continue our search process.
Patrick M. Murray
Chair, Board of Regents
