No student on search committee for new U-M president
This spring the President of the University of Michigan, Mary Sue Coleman, announced she is leaving that post .
The U of M Board of Regents appointed a Presidential Search Advisory Committee this summer and this time it does not include a student.
Matt Nolan is an attorney and the director of Dow Corning’s Political Action Committee. He is the former Michigan Student Assembly president. And he sat on the search advisory committee that chose Coleman to be President.
In fact, most searches for president of a major university includes a student representative.
The seven people on the Committee are faculty members, although some of them also hold administrative positions. What are they going to be missing that a student might notice during a search like this?
Listen to the interview above to hear the answer.
