Northwestern State University Presidential Search Committee to Meet July 8 to Select Semi-finalists

by BIZ Magazine

July 3, 2024 – The search for a new president of Northwestern State University (NSU) will advance on Monday, July 8, when the Presidential Search Committee convenes to review applications and select semi-finalists. This pivotal meeting, which is open to the public, will take place at 11 a.m. in the Louisiana Purchase Room of the W.C.C. Claiborne Building, located at 1201 N 3rd St, Baton Rouge, LA 70802.

The University of Louisiana System initiated the search for a new president following Dr. Marcus Jones’ acceptance of the role as executive vice president and chief operating officer within the System. This transition aims to ensure a smooth changeover for both Dr. Jones and his successor, minimizing disruptions ahead of the fall 2024 semester.

“We are looking forward to the next step of this process in identifying NSU’s next president,” said Rick Gallot, UL System president. “We are impressed with the caliber of applicants interested in this prestigious role and are confident that the committee will recommend the best leader for NSU from this pool of qualified candidates.”

In-person interviews with the semi-finalists are scheduled for July 15-16 on NSU’s campus. The final stage of the selection process will take place on July 18, when the UL System Board of Supervisors will interview the finalists and choose a new president.

“This thorough search process has yielded a robust slate of highly qualified candidates that reinforce our approach to identifying our next NSU president,” said Mark Romero, Board Chair of the University of Louisiana System. “We have sought to take full advantage of the quieter summer months in academia to focus our efforts and the NSU community’s attention on this search, and then shift our attention to other priorities leading into the fall semester. We look forward to welcoming NSU’s next president as we kick off the 2024 academic year.”
