ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) The University of New Mexico held a meeting Friday for public input on its search for the next university president.

The new president will replace Bob Frank who has announced he will not seek another term.

The Board of Regents collected feedback on the qualities and priorities people are hoping to see from the next president.

Some of the issues raised were finding candidates who will champion diversity, help connect students with employers, and work to improve kindergarten through 12 standards in New Mexico.

“The university should be the leading voice regarding education in the state,” said.

The purpose of the meeting was strictly informational to guide the regents as they start the search.
