ESU PRESIDENTIAL FINALISTS SELECTED

Four Finalists to Visit Campus

(TOPEKA) – The ESU Presidential Search Committee announced four individuals have been selected as presidential finalists for Emporia State University (ESU) and will interview on the ESU campus in the next two to three weeks.

During the interview, candidates will tour the campus and interact with various ESU constituent groups. A portion of each campus interview will be open to the public. ESU will announce the name of each finalist and the public portion of the interview one day prior to their visit.

The Search Committee will submit to the Board of Regents its candidate recommendations at the conclusion of the campus interviews. The Board hopes to name the 16th ESU President in December 2011.
