Stelfanie Williams A university committee is seeking comments as part of a scheduled administrative review of Vice President for Durham and Community Affairs Stelfanie Williams.

An important part of the review process is the gathering of input from the University’s many constituencies. Comments on performance and suggestions for the future are important to the committee’s work. The committee invites you to share your thoughts by email. Communication should include the nature of your interactions with Williams and her team in order to understand the context of your comments as fully as possible.

Your thoughts should be sent to and will be subsequently communicated to the committee. Information provided to the committee will be held in confidence but may be reported without attribution as part of the committee’s report that will be submitted to President Vincent Price.

Please send comments by Friday, March 4.
