ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) – Regents at the University of New Mexico have formally launched the search for the school’s next president.
Regents announced at a meeting Tuesday that the search will be chaired by Board of Regents President Rob Doughty. Regents Marron Lee and Tom Clifford will serve as committee members.
Doughty said in a statement that the effort will include input from the entire campus community.
Regents are issuing a request for proposals for an executive search consultant to identify and recruit qualified candidates. They’re hoping to have a new president selected by early spring.
President Robert Frank announced in September that he would not seek a second five-year term and would instead fill a new position as a tenured faculty member at the university’s Health Sciences Center beginning next June.
