The University of Colorado's Board of Regents has opened the nominations process for community members and alumni who want to serve on the search committee for President Bruce Benson's replacement. Benson is retiring in July 2019.

Regents Heidi Ganahl, R-at large, and Irene Griego, D-Lakewood, were elected to serve as co-chairs of the committee during a special board meeting on Sept. 5. The committee will likely include one dean, four faculty members, one student, one staff member, four community members and two alumni, though the regents have the latitude to change the committee's composition.

The committee will meet in the early evening on Tuesdays, November through the late spring, and committee members must be able to participate regularly, according to a news release. Most meetings will be at the CU system offices at 1800 Grant St. in Denver.

Nominations will remain open until Oct. 8, and the full committee will be appointed Oct. 24. To learn more about the search process or to apply, visit: cu.edu/presidential-search.
