    I have not personally met or had any dealings with any of the finalists. But I know colleagues who have. I have heard private expressions of concern regarding the performance of one of the finalists in their current position. Another finalist is rumored to have been the target of a previous recruitment effort here (at a lower level) that didn’t turn out well for UW-Madison. I hope that the Search Committee will be apprised of the details of that earlier effort and how it ended – is it possible that not every finalist is serious about wanting the job? And if a huge pay package would be needed to overcome their reluctance, is that who we really want?

    In summary, not everything that needs to be known about the finalists can be found on their CV. I hope that individuals with firsthand knowledge of issues (pro and con) relevant to any of the finalist’s suitability for the position of Chancellor will make these known to the Search Commitee.
