Finalists Named in
Search for Chancellor
October 25, 1999
The Advisory Search Committee for Chancellor and Provost for University Affairs has identified five finalists to date and is scheduling them for visits to the campus.
At the time of going to press, the schedules were being refined and biographical information on the candidates was being gathered to be posted early this week on the chancellor's homepage.
Following the candidates' campus visits, the search committee will submit an unranked list of candidates to President Philip E. Austin for his consideration and decision, said Ronald Taylor, vice provost for multicultural affairs and chair of the search committee.
The finalists are:
Paul B. Armstrong, dean, College of Arts and Sciences, State University of New York-Stony Brook, October 27-29.
John D. Petersen, dean, College of Science, Wayne State University, October 31-November 2.
Howard C. Johnson, associate vice chancellor for academic affairs and dean of the Graduate School, Syracuse University, November 3-5.
Lester A. Lefton, dean, Columbian School of Arts and Sciences, The George Washington University, November 7-9.
Frank J. Thompson, interim provost, Rockefeller College of Public Affairs and Policy, State University of New York at Albany, November 9-11.
The successful candidate will replace Mark A. Emmert, who left the University in June to become chancellor of Louisiana State University.
