The committee tasked with selecting the new University of Arizona president has come up with a list of 10 leadership characteristics and 16 experience and background criteria that they'd like job candidates to have.

Most of these points are just what you'd imagine.

For example, "A background of progressively responsible managerial or leadership positions in higher education, a large civic enterprise, or a substantial business enterprise."

Some of the points let the Board of Regents inject their own vision for the university.

For example, "Understand ... the need to significantly expand the UA's leadership role in addressing community and statewide issues" and "Have the ability to advance economic development through university research endeavors."
