TO: The Bennington College Community
FROM: Alan Kornberg ’74, Chair of the Board of Trustees
The Presidential Search Committee and representatives from our search consultants, Phillips Oppenheim, met with more than 200 students, faculty, and staff during a two-day visit to campus in late October. This month and next, we are conducting nine focus group sessions with alumni and parents in five cities across the U.S.—New York, Boston, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Washington, DC. Based on the feedback collected to date in these conversations and the several dozen online submissions we have received, the Committee has posted a position description for Bennington’s next president.
