Pitzer College - Open rank local-global position[]

Anyone received phone interviews for this/heard anything else?

I had a phone interview but have not heard anything else yet. Has anyone else who had a phone interview heard anything else yet?

Q: When was the phone interview?

A: Jan 12. You?

Q: Anyone heard anything? They brought out 4 candidates. I was one of them, in late February. They said decision could be a month or more! Have heard nothing since. It took them over a month to do phone interviews so perhaps there is hope...

I just got an email stating that they closed the search altogether and would revisit the position in AY 2012-13.
