Our view: The presidential search process has been a whirlwind of events, and while there appears to be a break in action now that the Board of Regents have selected Suzanne Shipley, president of Shepherd University, as the sole finalist for the job, it is imperative to the university’s growth that we maintain the mindset of change established by the search.

Now that the honeymoon period of the search is drawing to a close, we need to not return to business as usual. A state law prevents Shipley from being officially hired until 21 days after the announcement that she was chosen. That law exists so university constituents have the opportunity to express concerns over the choice.

Use this time to make it clear that we as students, faculty, staff and community members don’t want to return to the status quo, regardless of who our next president may be.
