Committee members are:

• Sandra Alberto, administrative assistant, Thompson Center for Learning and Teaching

• Margaret Andrews, director and professor of nursing, School of Health Professions and Studies

• Jan Furman, professor of English, College of Arts and Sciences

• Johnny Young, assistant vice chancellor for Student Services and Enrollment Management.

On Sept. 27, Coleman hosted an open forum at the campus to gather input from faculty, staff, students, alumni and the Flint community regarding the upcoming search.

"This search is vitally important to the future direction of U-M-Flint," Coleman said. "The caliber of our search committee informs me that we will find outstanding candidates for U-M-Flint's sixth chancellor."

The committee will accept suggestions or nominations for candidates by e-mail to or by writing to Lisa Connolly, Office of the President, 2048 Fleming Administration Building. Information also can be faxed to (734) 936-3529.
