The University of Minnesota Board of Regents is meeting Thursday morning to select finalists from a pool of 21 applicants to become the U’s interim president.
Board chair Janie Mayeron said she thought the one-week window for applicants, which closed Monday, could hurt the pool, but that didn’t seem to be the case.
“I am thrilled with the applicant pool that we have received. And I am actually floored with the number of applications we received in such a short period of time,” she said Thursday.
Under state law, the applicants’ names are not public until they become finalists.
Thursday’s meeting is public, so the regents are discussing the applicants in an anonymized fashion.
Each of the 12 regents was given six initial votes to allocate among the 21 applicants. They quickly eliminated 15 who failed to garner interest from at least half the board, then moved on to discussing the six who remained.
President Joan Gabel is leaving next month to become chancellor at the University of Pittsburgh.
Regents haven’t set a salary range for the one-year interim job. They intend to pick someone who does not want a permanent appointment.
