Students, faculty and alumni can follow Norfolk State University's search for its next leader on a new website.
The site, launched Thursday, includes a timeline of the process, an e-mail address for comments and a survey to rank the importance of characteristics needed in the new president. Norfolk State's Board of Visitors and the Presidential Search Committee set up the site.
"As the university has weathered major changes over the last few months, we want to ensure that all of our audiences are kept informed," said Ed Hamm, rector of the board, in a news release.
The search committee will begin running ads for the job in national publications next month, to the delight of many following the process.
Critics have said the group has taken too long to advertise the position, but committee members have said they did not want to post a job description before hearing from the community. The committee held two public forums in September and established an e-mail address to receive feedback
