UL System hopes to find next president by August
A nationwide search for the next president of the University of Louisiana System was launched today by the executive committee of the UL Board of Supervisors, which hopes to have a new leader in place by the end of August, when system President Randy Moffett is set to retire. "I know this is an ambitious schedule, but, as with all of our searches, it is flexible and intended to give us a framework," says UL System Board Chair Wayne Parker. "We are going to find the right person for this job with all due haste, but let me be clear that expedition will not overcome quality." Advertisements for the position will begin running as soon as possible, the board says, and an entire new section of the UL System website was launched today to give the public complete details on all aspects of the search. Check it out here. Parker has appointed himself and four other members of the board to serve on an application review committee that will ultimately recommend to the board which applicants should be interviewed. Serving with Parker on the committee are Andre Coudrain, Jimmy Faircloth Jr., Jimmie "Beau" Martin and Russell Mosely. UL is the largest higher education system in Louisiana, enrolling about 94,000 students at Grambling State, Louisiana Tech, McNeese State, Nicholls State, Northwestern State, Southeastern Louisiana, as well as the UL Lafayette, UL Monroe and UL New Orleans.
