Charles L. Welch, VP at the Arkansas State University System Speaks About Working with The Registry

Dr. Charles L. Welch, President, the Arkansas State University System spoke about working with The Registry on a recent interim search. “We considered a traditional, ‘permanent’ search for the position of Chancellor at Henderson State, but we did not believe that we could now engage campus constituencies sufficiently for a full search during the pandemic, nor could we be assured of a group of final candidates with the requisite skills and experience through a standard search process.

We were seeking a highly experienced administrator who was a sitting president, if possible, with demonstrated crisis management expertise. These are not always the items emphasized in a traditional search process.

Thus, for our needs, The Registry model worked beautifully. Our agreement with them produced a number of highly-qualified individuals who met the expectations above precisely, and we believe we chose a finalist who was an almost-perfect match for Henderson State at this point. Simply said, The Registry made sense to us as the placement firm of choice, and we are now beginning a new search with them for a provost within our System as a proof of that.”
