Following a Feb. 12-13 Board of Regents meeting, the committee in charge of the presidential search released an update Monday announcing that three finalists had been selected out of the 53 applicants.

The three applicants will be making campus visits in the coming weeks and attending forums to meet with the students, faculty, staff, and community. Although there are individual forums set up for students, faculty, staff and community members, each forum is open for anyone to attend.

The committee will release the identity and résumé of the finalists at 8 a.m. the day before their respective campus visits.

The first candidate will visit campus Feb. 23, the second candidate will visit Feb. 25 and the third candidate will visit March 2. While each finalist is here, they’ll also be individually interviewed by the Board of Regents, according to an update on the official website for the presidential search.

The update also stated that the Board of Regents should select a finalist or finalists at a public meeting to be set for early March, and name the next president within 21 days of that meeting.
