The search is ongoing for a president at Capilano University on the Sunshine Coast.

A year ago the current present, Dr. Kris Bulcroft, submitted her resignation but agreed to stay on until July 2016.

Over the past three months the recruitment firm hired to find a replacement has held consultation meetings with various stakeholder groups.

The purpose was to receive community input on the opportunities and challenges the next president will need to address, as well as the leadership qualities most likely to contribute to success.

The job profile is now live and a list of recommended candidates will be compiled.
