SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Missouri State University says its 20-member search committee has begun reviewing applications for its new president.
Friday, the Presidential Search Committee announced it was looking through 38
applications -- 34 of which arrived before
MSU says the search committee will use the next six weeks to review the materials and narrow the field to 10-12 candidates and then to six-eight semifinalists by early September.
By late September, two-four finalists will be identified and recommended to the Board of Governors.
The finalists identified will then be invited to campus for three-day visits in early October. The Board's goal is to name the new president no later than November 1, with the start time flexible depending on the person named.
Nietzel left the university as president a year ago.
