UC succession plan

February 10, 2009

To:   University of Cincinnati Community

From: H.C. Buck Niehoff

      Chair

      University of Cincinnati Board of Trustees

The University of Cincinnati Board of Trustees congratulates Nancy Zimpher on her appointment as Chancellor of the State University of New York (SUNY) system. The chancellorship presents exceptional challenges as well as the opportunity to influence the future of American higher education by leading the largest comprehensive public higher education system in the United States. In our association with Dr. Zimpher, we have learned that she accepts challenge forthrightly and with an admirable array of skills. Obviously, this aptitude and her record of success here were very attractive to New York.

There is no question that the University of Cincinnati has benefitted from Dr. Zimpher's leadership. We had hoped to enjoy her continued leadership but understand and appreciate her interest in this new opportunity. Because of Dr. Zimpher's efforts, however, the University of Cincinnati is positioned for future success. It is time to begin steps that will lead to the selection of our next president.

The Board of Trustees will immediately initiate a transition process. This will involve actions to ensure mission continuity, including the identification of an interim president to be in place upon President Zimpher's departure, which will tentatively occur on June 1, 2009. We will convene a search committee to select our next president as described in University Rule 10-6-01. As this transition proceeds, you will be kept informed of progress and of opportunities to become involved in the transition.

The University of Cincinnati is a better place today, thanks to President Zimpher's leadership. We must remember that our current success is built on the efforts of all of us, and we will all be working together in this transition to our next president.  We expect that, because of UC's stature and recent progress, our search will attract top-caliber talent that will continue to advance the university's greatness.
