BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) Twenty search committee members have been appointed by the Board of Supervisors with the task of selecting LSU’s next president which will begin today.
The search committee will have its first meeting Thursday afternoon to discuss who will lead the university.
The members are a diverse group representing the different ethnicities, genders, academic disciplines, occupations, geographical regions and constituencies whose input is vital to selecting the next leader of LSU.
The committee will be asked to prepare a description for the position and will also have the authority to recommend any structural or organizational changes that might help find the best leader for the future of the university.
“Our intention is that the search committee will identify individuals who have led or are capable of leading one of the nation’s premier academic, research and health care enterprises,” LSU board chair Robert Dampf says.
Tom Galligan was appointed interim president January 1, 2020 after F. King Alexander stepped down.
Galligan has served as dean of LSU’s Paul M. Hebert Law Center since 2016.
The public may submit written comments related to agenda items and those will be added to the official record one hour prior to the start of the meeting to email@example.com.
