The long list of nominations for the new Rutgers University president has been narrowed down to just several dozen.
The Star-Ledger reports the search committee has collected more than 250 nominations, but has now narrowed down the list considerably. Greg Brown, who chairs the 24-member search committee, told The Star-Ledger the group has identified a number of candidates he describes as “active,” meaning they are eager to be considered.
The Star-Ledger says most of the candidates are from outside of the university.
The search committee is working with R. William Funk & Associates, a higher-education search firm.
