Update on the Search for New MSU President

The number of candidates that could potentially be the new MSU President has become smaller.

The Presidential Search Advisory Committee met with consultants from Academic Search last week and carefully reviewed 53 applications from a national applicant pool presenting distinguished credentials.

Following this review of the applicants, they have extended invitations to 11 highly qualified leaders for preliminary interviews. They are still at the confidential stage at this point, and are not yet announcing when and where these interviews will take place.  

After these preliminary interviews, the university anticipates bringing no less than three nor more than five individuals to campus in late February or early March.
