Purdue panel wants online input for president hunt

Purdue University is opening up the search for its next president to the campus community through an online survey.

University Senate Chairman Morry Levy told the school's board of trustees Friday that a special advisory committee plans next week to unveil an online survey so that faculty, staff and students can offer recommendations for the search. The panel will use the survey results to formulate recommendations for the search committee.

The Journal & Courier reports the advisory committee was formed at the board's request to solicit broad input into the search. The panel was formed after the search committee was criticized for lacking diversity.

Purdue is seeking a successor to President France Cordova. She is retiring next summer.
