NMSU presidential search committee on track to make recommendation

Wednesday, January 30, 2013 - 11:40pm

A search committee charged with finding the next president at New Mexico State University had its first meeting, according to committee Chair Larry Lujan.

In a letter, Lujan said the 15-member committee is on track to make a recommendation in hopes of announcing a new president in May.

The university decided to part ways with Barbara Couture last October.

Lujan said in the letter the next president has to have a good track record at a higher learning institution and must have an ability to connect with faculty, staff, and students.

The university will also be paying a search firm $90,000 to help with the selection process.
