McMurry Begins Search for New President
University seeks successor for Dr. John Russell
July 10, 2013
The Search Committee has been working diligently since July 1 and progress has been substantial. The Committee is pleased with the number of qualified applicants and have begun meeting weekly to refine the candidate list. No predictions can be made at this time, but the Committee is confident solid progress will be made as they move through July and August.

Last week the search committee met in Dallas for initial interviews with several candidates who we determined had the required background and credentials for this position. The committee felt strongly that there is a candidate we can unanimously recommend for consideration to move to the next level at this time and are in the process of making arrangements for a campus visit. As that visit draws nearer, more information will be available on this site.
Thank you for your commitment to this effort, your support of the committee’s work, and your dedication to the future of McMurry University.
