5 Candidates For UNO Presidency To Be Interviewed This Week
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The search committee seeking a new leader for the struggling University of New Orleans will hold public interviews this week with the five candidates under consideration for the job.
The New Orleans Advocate’s Richard Thompson reports the interviews will be held Wednesday through Friday, after which the committee expects to narrow the list down to two or more finalists, who will be presented to the full University of Louisiana System's board Feb. 23 in a public meeting. At that point, the board is expected to make its choice for the next president.
Each of the five candidates is slated to meet with student leaders, community leaders and UNO alumni and faculty in addition to a public interview with the search committee, which is set to last nearly two hours.
