Listening Sessions for New Ridgewater President Scheduled 26 Sep 17

(Willmar/Hutchinson MN-) The national search for the next permanent Ridgewater College president will get underway soon.

In preparation for the search, Minnesota State Interim Chancellor Dr. Devinder Malhotra will host listening sessions with various constituency groups, including the public.

A community listening session is scheduled for Wednesday (September 27) from 11:10 to 11:50 a.m. in Hutchinson (room 270 auditorium) and from 4:30 to 5:10 p.m. in Willmar (room A240) in the Student Center building.

The purpose of these sessions is for Dr. Malhotra to solicit input from Ridgewater College and Willmar/Hutchinson communities on the qualities important for the college’s next president.

Staff and faculty will offer input at separate sessions.

People wanting to offer input but who are unable to attend the listening session, may do so by mailing comments to chancellor@minnstate.edu .

The Minnesota State Colleges Board decided not to renew the contract for Dr. Doug Allen at Ridgewater, and Joe Opatz has been filling in.
