The Murray State University presidential search continues to progress toward a conclusion.
Murray State’s Presidential search committee has identified 11 finalists for off-site interviews in January, according to a statement from the school.
Chairman Stephen Williams says the nine member committee was unanimous in its selection of the finalists. He says consulting search firm Witt Kieffer provided the committee a list of 60 diverse candidates from varied backgrounds. Williams says the off-site interviews will likely be in Nashville, Tennessee January 11 and 12.
Williams wouldn’t mention whether or not there are any internal applicants or finalists.
Williams also says that if the consultant identifies an “extremely deserving candidate” between now and March that the committee wouldn’t preclude that person from consideration.
