What a wondrous time of year when we celebrate our risen Lord and Savior! We trust you had a wonderful Easter. As we move past our Easter celebration, your Presidential Search Committee (PSC), alongside Carter Baldwin, our search firm, continues the progress through our process to find the next president for IWU. We are meeting the expected timeline, and candidates continue to express interest and communicate confidentially with Carter Baldwin. In a recent PSC update meeting with Carter Baldwin, they shared their satisfaction with the pace and engagement of the candidate pool. They noted potential candidates hold IWU in high regard and have shared many positive accolades about our institution.
As we move into the next few weeks, Carter Baldwin will continue to pursue candidates and conduct interviews with selected candidates. We are entering a critical time in the search, and we ask that you continue to pray (and fast). Specifically, pray that Carter Baldwin will discern God’s will as they finalize the candidate pool and begin to help the PSC narrow the field down. We are confident in God’s direction and are looking forward with great expectation to engaging the high-quality candidate pool that is being secured.
Simply put, our search for IWU’s next president continues:
- It is proceeding on an expected timeline.
- We have a like-minded partner in Carter Baldwin who is securing a high-quality pool of candidates.
- The PSC is not wavering from the non-negotiables that the Board of Trustees established
- God is with us.
