SIU trustees table discussion on new chancellor for SIU campus

CARBONDALE, IL (KFVS) - Southern Illinois University in Carbondale will be without a permanent chancellor for a while longer.

After a meeting on Wednesday, May 10, in Edwardsville, Illinois, members of the Board of Trustees decided to table the agenda item to make the selection of a permanent chancellor. The board asked Dunn to review three more candidates and interview and additional two.

On May 16, System President Randy Dunn announced the names of two additional finalists for the position: Rodney Scott Hanley and Carlo Montemagno.

"The answer is as soon as possible, but you know by the time you get your trustees scheduled and work around 5 candidates schedules, this may take a bit, and I think instruction from the board is as soon as we can move forward to get it done, get it done," President Dunn said.

The board of trustees did pass a resolution to allow SIU Carbondale unrestricted funds from the SIU Edwardsville campus in amounts necessary.
