The Presidential Search and Screen Committee will host their second round of listening sessions on both the Statesboro and Savannah campuses of Georgia Southern University next week.

The first listening session will take place in Savannah on Oct. 17 from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the University Hall Room 158, and the second will take place in Statesboro on Oct. 18 from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Interdisciplinary Academic Building Room 1012.

Next week’s listening sessions will be in the early evening, as the committee is hoping for a higher turnout and more discussion.

“We wanted to provide an alternative time for those people who weren’t able to come to the first round, which might have been while they were in class or at work,” Dustin Anderson, Ph.D., chair of the search committee, said in an email. “Since the first round was earlier in the day, we wanted to offer an evening option this time around. We had an interesting cross-section of all of our groups, and we’re hoping to see that again on Wednesday and Thursday.”
