The following letter from the Regis Board of Trustees was shared via email with the Regis community on Tuesday, September 14.
Dear Members of the Regis Community,
We hope you and your families have enjoyed a healthy and restful summer. We are excited to begin a new school year, which will hopefully be uneventful despite the Covid delta variant.
As we indicated in April, the Regis Board of Trustees has been focused on the selection of the next permanent President for Regis. For a school of Regis’ caliber, a national search is best practice, so after careful consideration the Board decided to hire the executive search firm Spencer Stuart to launch that search. We believe Regis’ unique mission and academic stature will attract a number of highly qualified candidates.
We have formed a Presidential Search Committee consisting of the following members from our community:
To ensure that all potential candidates can apply without risk to their current positions, we will not publicly disclose the identity or participation of any candidates. We ask that you respect this process, and understand that committee members will not be at liberty to disclose any information about the search.
We plan to solicit input from current families, faculty and staff, and alumni about their ideas for our next President. Spencer Stuart will soon be sending an email with a link to a survey to gather such input. In addition, consultants from Spencer Stuart will meet with faculty, staff, and administrators. We ask you to think about the following questions:
We thank all of you for your dedication to Regis and wish you well as we begin the new school year. We thank Christian Talbot ’93, who will continue to provide leadership for the school as Interim President. And we thank you in advance for your advice and input as we begin this critical process. We are confident that Regis is Strong to Endure as we search for a permanent leader of our beloved alma mater.
