May 8th & 9th   -  Candidate A (Curriculum Vitae)
May 10th & 11th -  Candidate B (Curriculum Vitae)
May 15th & 16th - Candidate C (Curriculum Vitae)

Please send questions for the Q&A sessions to search committee member Lisa De La Rue at

Please bear in mind that it is extremely important that as many people as possible attend the public presentations of the candidates. This is critical for two reasons: 1) it gives each of us an opportunity to see the candidate and ask questions and 2) it gives the candidates exposure to as many USF constituents as possible. Showing interest in each candidate will assure that we present a positive image of the University of San Francisco to the best candidates.

Thank you for your time and contributions to this search. Please feel free to send questions and comments to Shirley McGuire (, Regan Gough (
