WILLIAMBSBURG, Va. (AP) — The search begins to replace William & Mary President Taylor Reveley when he retires next year.

The university says in a press release that a search committee has been formed. Its 19 members include school’s leaders, board members, faculty and a current student leader.

The group plans to hear from faculty, staff and students at public forums on April 19. The school is also soliciting input from the larger William & Mary community in Williamsburg.

The committee will eventually draft a description of the kind of person it’s looking for. It will guide the school in its nationwide search.

The university’s goal is to choose a new leader by the winter or spring of 2018. Reveley will retire the following June.
