Several candidates for vice president of University Relations have been identified, but letters of interest will continue to be accepted through April.
The search committee plans to complete candidate selection by June-August 2008.
As part of the recruitment stage, ads have been placed in various national publications, said Howard Grimes, search committee chair and vice president for research and dean of the Graduate School.
In addition, the university has hired the Chicago firm of Campbell & Company to help identify national candidates. The firm has identified several to bring forward, Grimes said.
