Earlier this month, college leaders announced that search had been narrowed down to three candidates.

According to Board of Trustees Chairman M. Peebles Harrison, the search team met recently to interview the three.

“Faculty, staff, students, and alumni who can do so are encouraged to attend,” King said.

Dr. Dennis Stevens is serving as interim president. Dr. Chris Howard, the college’s former president, was elected president of Robert Morris University in Pennsylvania in September.
