Presidential Search Update

Members of the Andover Newton Community:

Each of us on the Presidential Search Committee sends a sincere thank you to the campus community for the warm welcome extended to our finalists.  The candidates all commented about the sense of community, the impressive interest and participation in the search, and the quality of the questions.

Thank you, too, for your prompt feedback to the search committee. Your input is invaluable to our deliberations.

The search process now enters the silent phase, which may require some time. The next steps are as follows:

  • Committee deliberates and prepares recommendation to the board of trustees.
  • Committee submits recommendation to board of trustees.
  • Board of trustees considers recommendation.
  • Board of trustees extends formal offer to president-designate.
  • Board and president-designate agree to terms of employment.
  • Board announces appointment of our next president.

As you can see, a number of things take place during this silent phase of the search.  Members of the search committee and the board of trustees appreciate your patience as we continue our work and anticipate the public announcement of the next president of Andover Newton Theological School.

Rev. Dr. Jim Sherblom
Chair, Presidential Search Committee
