Fla University System Close to Having New Leader

A search committee is close to recommending a new chancellor for Florida's university system.

The committee is scheduled to meet Tuesday in Orlando, where members will interview four finalists for the job. The panel is made up of seven members of the Florida Board of Governors.

University system officials are looking for a permanent replacement for Frank Brogan. Brogan, who was once Florida's lieutenant governor, left the job at the end of September to take a similar job in Pennsylvania.

The four finalists for the post are: Marshall Criser III, president of AT&T Florida and son of a former University of Florida president; Mark Drummond, former chancellor of the California community college system; Jim Purcell, commissioner of the Louisiana Board of Regents; and Bruce Rafert, provost at North Dakota State University.
