Faculty senate wants list of president candidates
BATON ROUGE - The LSU Faculty Senate has adopted a resolution calling on the LSU Board of Supervisors to disclose the names of candidates under consideration to become the university's next president.
Members of LSU's Presidential Search Committee, earlier this month, announced they had about 30 candidates on their short list to assume the university's top position.
The university is expected to announce the identity of a sole finalist once that person has been selected. They have set June as a target date to finish the search.
Monday's Faculty Senate vote to suspend the rules signals an urgency on the part of faculty to put pressure on an LSU board frequently criticized by staff as being secretive to the point of causing harm to the university's reputation.
