BATON ROUGE, La. - The Southern University System board is now considering to merge its system president and its Baton Rouge chancellor positions.

Southern leaders had started the search for a new president last year and then broke off that search before the New Year. They board decided to wait for a changeover in board members before picking a new leader.

This week, Gov. Bobby Jindal named five new members to the system board, paving the way for the search for a new president to start again. The old board voted 9-4 against extending President Ronald Mason Jr.'s contract beyond its June 30 expiration date.

The board has not taken a position on a proposed merger of the president and chancellor roles.
