BATON ROUGE - The people who search for the next Chancellor of Southern University may soon be shaken up.

"Only three females are on the committee," Mass Communications professor Marilyn Goff said, "It's not representative of the diversity here at Southern," she said.

President Ronald Mason, Jr. told the Senate Faculty he would try to change that, by adding more women to the 17-person search committee.

Additionally, the Senate Faculty passed a motion to come up with a way to nominate candidates for the position of Chancellor from within the University, something the Senate Faculty believes Southern University was failing to do.

The Senate Faculty will meet with a search firm at the end of January to discuss how they will go about looking for a new chancellor.
