Five candidates were identified as finalists to serve as the next Associate Vice Chancellor for Facilities Planning and Management. The final candidates visited campus and presented on the same topic at two different forums: one public presentation open to any campus employee and one presentation for all FP&M employees. Candidates presented their leadership style and approach to leading a large and diverse department at a major public research institution. A question-and-answer session followed each presentation. Additionally, each candidate was asked for a brief summary of their qualifications and interest in the position, which were translated below.
