Wheeling Jesuit U. in its search for a new president “received no applications from Jesuits, [but] did receive applications from other religious,” Margaret “Mimie” Helm, chair of the Presidential Search Committee and vice chair of the WJU board of directors, told the Wheeling Intelligencer.
We are confident that we will locate an applicant who will stay true to the Jesuit tradition of women and men for others, she added, stressing that the Jesuit identity is a fundamental priority for the search.
They were duly informed:
As part of the process, all Jesuit colleges and universities and all Jesuit provincials were contacted to let them know of the search at the local university, she added.
I’d say the longest shots among them would be the other religious order members, especially male. A Dominican, for instance, might require de-programming.
