CARBONDALE, Il. -- Southern Illinois University's president has made up his mind about who should be the next chancellor at SIU's campus in Carbondale, and he'll make this choice known this afternoon.
Glenn Poshard has scheduled a 1 p.m. news conference at the university's Student Center (Ballroom B) to announce who will succeed Walter Wendler, who was ousted by Poshard late last year.
The four finalists are:
  • Fernando Trevino, dean of the University of North Texas' School of Public Health
  • John Frederick, University of Nevada-Reno's executive vice president and provost
  • Sue Kiefer Hammersmith, University of Wisconsin-Green Bay provost
  • Yash Gupta, a professor of operations management in the University of Southern California's business school.
