The newly-formed Texas A&M presidential search committee will get the ball rolling on its search this week.
The A&M System announced Monday that the 15-person panel will meet for the first time Friday at 8 a.m. at the Regents Annex on campus.
Last week, the Board of Regents announced the formation of the committee to conduct the nationwide search for the next president of A&M.
The first meeting, according to the System, will serve to begin mapping out a search plan for the new leader of the College Station campus. While a charge was given to the committee as far as expectations for the end result, the search itself was largely undefined and left to the committee to decide.
That group is made up of three Regents, including committee chairman Richard Box, along with five faculty members, two students and five others with Aggie ties.
Board of Regents Chairman Morris Foster set a target of having a top three or four candidates ready by January, with a finalist by February, though Foster said more time could be taken if needed.
No budget for the search was set by the board last week, and Foster said cost would not drive the search.
