Fort Lewis College has created online feedback surveys for community members to comment about the three finalists vying to become the school’s next president.
The surveys for each candidate are available through Wednesday. They are a way for people to provide their thoughts about each candidate to the Board of Trustees.
The survey data will be available only to the trustees.
The Board of Trustees has scheduled an extended public comment session from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday at its monthly meeting in the Vallecito Room of the Student Union.
The discussion will provide campus and community members the opportunity to speak to trustees directly about the three choices for president. Trustees ask that comments be limited to a few minutes to allow as many people to speak as possible.
Trustees expect to announce their choice for the next president at a special trustee meeting to be scheduled for the week beginning April 16.
The feedback surveys are available online at:
