The newly established Vermont State University is in search of a new president following the unexpected departure of the university’s first leader within a year of his tenure. The search is being conducted by the Vermont State Colleges Board of Trustees Ad Hoc Search Committee, which is dedicated to identifying suitable replacements. VSU was formed after several state colleges merged, including Lyndon State College and Johnson State College that had previously combined into Northern Vermont University. The two campuses of the old Northern Vermont University and those of the Vermont Technical College in Williston and Randolph, together with the campus of the former Castleton University, now make up VSU. The state-wide institution officially started its academic year on July 1st. On July 19, the search committee received an update from the search firm, Storbeck Search, about potential candidates for the president’s role and discussed the next steps in a closed session.
