New York, Texas and S.D. candidates are finalists for UW presidency

The University of Wyoming Board of Trustees has identified three finalists for the university presidency and scheduled public appearances on campus for each beginning Monday, Dec. 7. The candidates are Jeremy Haefner, senior vice president for academic affairs and provost at the Rochester Institute of Technology in Henrietta, N.Y.; Duane Nellis, president of Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas; and Laurie Nichols, provost and executive vice president for academic affairs at South Dakota State University in Brookings, S.D. Next week, all three will have meetings with faculty, students and the Board of Trustees. At 3 p.m. on that candidate's day, there will be an open forum with the public at the UW Conference Center. Nellis will be on Dec. 7, Nichols will be on Dec. 9, and Haefner will be on Dec. 14. Each candidate will interview with the Board of Trustees at 5 p.m. on each of the three days at the Marian H. Rochelle Gateway Center, followed by informal evening receptions and dinner with the trustees and other invited guests. The interviews will take place in executive sessions of the board.
