The purpose of the Special Meeting is to receive comments and input from UW Community members on their perspectives on the University and its future leadership. Forums are open to everyone, but each is targeted at a specific constituency.

The following are examples of questions the Regents will be asking;
1. How would you describe the most important characteristics of the University of Washington?
2. What are the greatest opportunities and challenges facing the next president of the university?
3. What experiences, qualities, and characteristics are required in the next president to meet these opportunities and challenges?
4. Do you have other advice to offer to the Presidential Search Advisory Committee and the Board of Regents at this stage of the search?

On behalf of the Board of Regents and Presidential Search Advisory Committee Chair Kenyon Chan, we hope you will be able to attend and tell us your thoughts.
