Search for new UNM president continues

News

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The search for the University of New Mexico’s next president is now at the interview stage but a faculty resolution could change that.

According to the Albuquerque Journal, the Board of Regents say the search committee completed the first round of candidate interviews last week.

The Regents still intend to formally address a faculty senate resolution asking the board to postpone the search and extend interim President Chaouki Abdallah’s time on the job.

A vote at a special meeting is expected next Tuesday.
