A 33-member search committee was formed including representatives of the board, board zone appointees, faculty and classified staff unions, employee groups, student body, foundation, K-12, University of Oregon, chambers of commerce, cities of Eugene, Springfield, Cottage Grove, and Florence, and Lane County.
