SIU Carbondale announces chancellor finalists


Four finalists for the chancellor position at Southern Illinois University Carbondale will be on campus in late April and early May for interviews.

All of the finalists are currently sitting provosts with experience in overseeing academic initiatives and serving in multiple university roles.

SIUC said interview dates are being finalized.

The finalists are:

  • Pam Benoit - Executive vice president and provost at Ohio University
  • Susan M. Ford - Acting provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs at SIU Carbondale
  • Sabah U. Randhawa - Executive vice president and provost at Oregon State University
  • Lawrence Schovanec - Provost and senior vice president at Texas Tech University

The candidates were identified by an advisory committee of faculty, staff, students and other university constituents.

The committee received 30 applications and interviewed nine semi-finalists before recommending the four finalists to SIU President Randy Dunn, who will recommend a final candidate to the university's Board of Trustees following the interview process.

Dunn said he hopes to have a chancellor in place before the beginning of the fall semester.

Application materials for the finalists and background about the search are available by clicking here.
