Regents ask for input on UA president search
Board will hold forums through Oct. 24
The Arizona Board of Regents is asking for public input as they search for a new president of the University of Arizona.
The Regents will hold forums, which continue through Oct. 24, where the community can offer suggestions in the search, the UA said in a press release.
Robert Shelton, 62, announced on June 13 that he would be stepping down as the school's leader after five years to become the executive director of the Fiesta Bowl.
"This was probably the most difficult decision I've ever had to make," Shelton said when he announced his resignation in June.
"I have spent my entire career in higher education and I care passionately about the UA. But there always comes a point in life where you feel that it is time to try something new," he said.
Eugene Sander, former vice provost and dean of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, has been serving as president since Aug. 1.
