The Illinois State University Board of Trustees will meet for its regular quarterly meeting Friday, and ISU spokesman Jay Groves said they could vote on their choice for the next president.
The Murray State University Board of Regents will meet for its regular quarterly meeting on the same day, and MSU President Dr. Randy Dunn is one of four finalists in the ISU presidential search who visited the campus recently to meet with the board and university constituents. Groves, who is the chief of staff in the president’s office, said that while it is not a certainty that the board will vote on its choice for ISU’s next president Friday, there is a “strong possibility” that they will.
Groves said the presidential search advisory committee has 27 members, and the executive team of that committee met Saturday, May 4, to review the finalists and the input the committee received from the campus community after the finalists’ visits. The ISU board’s meeting will begin at 9 a.m. Friday.
