2010 News Releases

Longwood University to announce new president on Tuesday, March 2

February 25, 2010

Almost one year to the date when Longwood president Patricia Cormier announced her retirement plans, the university will announce her successor on Tuesday, March 2 at 3:30 p.m. in the Blackwell Ballroom.  In March of last year, the Longwood University Board of Visitors appointed a Presidential Search and Screening Advisory Committee to conduct a nationwide search for Longwood's 25th president.  

Longwood worked with the consulting firm Academic Search Inc. in conducting the search, which attracted a record-breaking 124 applicants for the position.  The search was narrowed down to nine highly qualified candidates and then narrowed further to a final four candidates who visited the campus in February.  

Background information on Longwood's new president will be available online following the announcement at: www.longwood.edu
