Several members of the presidential search committee will be at both events, in addition to student representative Brad Krites, PSG president in 2010-11, to solicit input, feedback and the opinions of students.

In conjunction with the forums, Krites has worked with the student government presidents at each Purdue campus to develop a student-specific survey that will give students an opportunity to provide feedback for the committee. That survey is expected to be released early this week.
