NORMAL (25News Now) - Illinois State University’s Board of Trustees is scheduled to meet in special session Friday to consider hiring an outside search firm to help find ISU’s next president.

Aondover Tarhule has served as interim president since mid-February when Terry Goss KInzy resigned after less than two years on the job.

The search firm has yet to be chosen, and the cost has also not been determined, said Eric Jome, an ISU spokesperson.

The university used a search firm when Kinzy was hired, but other parts of the selection process were kept confidential. The names of the presidential finalists were not made public, and no public meetings were held for the university community to meet the candidates.

Trustees at some point will announce whether this will be a more open process.

Friday’s special meeting is scheduled at 1:30 p.m. at the Old Main Room in the Bone Student Center. The meeting can also be viewed on ISU’s YouTube channel.
