Committee begins work to find next ISU president
NORMAL (25News Now) - A 29-member committee has met for the first time to find Illinois State University’s next president.
The university is looking to replace Terry Goss Kinzy, who resigned last February after less than two years as president.
The search process that led to Kinzy’s hiring was done in secrecy. This will be a more open process, according to ISU Board of Trustees Chair Kathryn Bohn, who is also chairing the search committee.
The panel wants three-to-five finalists brought to campus this spring for public engagement sessions.
Interim ISU President Aondover Tarhule has not said publicly if he’s interested in the job long-term. He’s under contract to serve as interim president until June 30.
