According to a statement from SU:

To facilitate the recruitment of high-caliber candidate pools, searches for USM presidents are closed, meaning the identity of candidates will not publicly be disclosed during the search process. The search will be inclusive and reflect input from the campus and community to ensure selection is the product of stakeholder engagement.    

Admission to the town hall is free and the public is invited. For more information call 410-543-6030.
