The members of the Trustee Presidential Selection Council were appointed November 16, 2012, upon authorization by the Penn State Board of Trustees to oversee the search process for the next President of the University.
The council consists of 13 Trustees and the chair of For the Future: The Campaign for Penn State Students.
"The selection of our next president is one of the most important decisions we, as a university, will make,” said Karen Peetz, chair of the board’s Presidential Selection Council. "Consequently, the Presidential Selection Council will rely heavily on all parts of our community and constituent representatives, including faculty, academic and administrative leadership, staff, students and alumni as members of the University Presidential Search and Screen Committee."
