Chancellor search narrows

by Anna Oakes

Appalachian State University board of trustees and Chancellor Search Committee chairman Michael Steinback said the trustees on Wednesday would consider the recommendation of three chancellor candidates to UNC system President Tom Ross.

Steinback said the search committee selected the three finalists at a closed session meeting on Friday. The trustees are scheduled to meet in closed session via conference call at 4 p.m. Wednesday.

Current Chancellor Ken Peacock announced last spring that he would retire once a successor is chosen. The search committee, which includes ASU trustees, faculty, staff, community members and a student, formed in August. Steinback said last month that the committee hoped trustees would approve the submission of three finalists to Ross by mid-February.

Ross will then select ASU's chancellor from among the three candidates, who cannot be ranked by the committee or the trustees.
