Vice president for human resources search

Search committee announces public forum dates

Three finalists for the position of vice president for human resources at the University of Delaware will visit the campus next week, according to Laure Ergin, vice president and general counsel and chair of the search committee.

Each candidate will speak at an open forum. Dates for the presentations are Nov. 14, 15 and 17, with the forums scheduled for 9-9:45 a.m. in the Class of 1941 Lecture Room at the Morris Library each day. Detailed information will be published on UDaily next week, including the link to a special website for accessing background on each candidate.

The search committee, composed of faculty and staff with broad academic and administrative expertise, has been working to identify excellent candidates for the position.

“The vice president for human resources will lead a strategic, transparent and customer-service-oriented Human Resources function designed to advance functional and operational excellence at the University,” Ergin said. “Our committee has identified three exemplary candidates for this critical leadership position, and I encourage the campus community to attend the forums to learn more about each candidate and provide feedback to us.”

Members of the search committee include Carol Henderson, vice provost of diversity; Matt Kinservik, vice provost for faculty affairs; Kim McDade, senior associate athletic director for finance, analytics and business operations, José-Luis Riera, interim vice president for student life, and Kimberly A. Reinagel-Nietubicz, strategic policy analyst.

Darcell Griffith, director of Compensation and Benefits in Human Resources, has been serving as interim chief human resources officer since the retirement of Tom LaPenta on July 1.
