Presidential Search


Message from the Search Committee Chair

The College Council is charged by state statute and SUNY policy with the very important role of conducting the search for the next President of Farmingdale State College. The search will follow the SUNY “Guide to Presidential Searches at State-Operated Campuses.” All public aspects of the search will be relayed to the campus through postings on this web page.  Search Committee members are however bound by confidentiality to keep deliberations private, and I ask members of the campus community and public to honor their roles. This is essential in order to assure the integrity of the search and protect candidates’ privacy.  In the latter stages of the search finalists will be publicly announced and on-campus open interviews will take place. 

A search firm, Academic Search, Inc., has been retained to assist the committee and College Council. The firm’s expertise will help to assure that the process unfolds with integrity and concludes with the appointment of the college’s next President. 

The Search Committee has been formed, according to specifications of the “Guide,” and its membership is posted on this search web page. 

The search firm staff will conduct interviews with stakeholders during the early phases of the process, culminating in an Institutional Profile for the college. This profile, which will be posted on the search web page, will be used to announce and promote the position to prospective candidates. 

I want to thank the members of the campus community staff for their input and cooperation, and I thank the Chancellor’s staff who will be involved in every phase of the search. I aim to assure that the process unfolds in a proper manner that identifies our next President for an exciting new phase of development at Farmingdale.

Dr. Patricia Hill Williams
College Council Chair and Search Committee Chair
