250 nominations list down to several dozen for Rutgers president

    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.
