HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – Marshall University’s Board of Governors is scheduled to meet today in its regular bimonthly meeting at 11 a.m. and is expected to name the university’s 38th president.
The meeting will be live streamed at https://livestream.com/marshallu.
The university initiated the search in June following President Jerome A. Gilbert’s announcement that he would not pursue a contract extension. Over the summer, the search narrowed to 16 semi-finalists who were interviewed off campus, and then culminated with five finalists who visited Marshall earlier this month.
The five individuals under consideration are, in alphabetical order: Dr. Bernard Arulanandam, vice president for research, economic development, and knowledge enterprise at The University of Texas at San Antonio; Dr. Bret Danilowicz, provost and vice president for academic affairs at Florida Atlantic University; Dr. Robyn Hannigan, provost at Clarkson University in New York; Dr. Kathy Johnson, executive vice chancellor and chief academic officer at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis and Mr. Brad D. Smith, co-founder, Wing 2 Wing Foundation.
