Northwestern University students, faculty and staff are invited to open forums being held on the Chicago and Evanston campuses by the Presidential Search Committee on May 8.

Members of the Search Committee will be at each of the forums to listen to suggestions and thoughts from the campus community.

"We're looking forward to having the opportunity to get input from members of the Northwestern community on what are the most important characteristics for the next president of Northwestern," said William Osborn, chair of the committee. Osborn is a 1969 graduate of the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences and a 1973 graduate of the Kellogg School of Management, chair of the Board of Trustees budget committee and chairman of the Northern Trust Corp., Chicago.

"The search committee will have its first meeting the next day, so these forums are a timely opportunity for students, faculty and staff to provide the committee input and guidance as it begins its work." Osborn said.
