Princeton hopes for final presidential recommendation by Spring

    The search committee for Princeton University’s new president will convene in October to interview students to help with the process, the Daily Princetonian reports.

    President Shirley Tilghman announced last week that she’ll leave her post at the end of the academic year.

    Tilghman’s been in the position since 2001 and will take a year off before returning to teaching.

    The search committee will meet over the next several months and hopes to have a final recommendation for Tilghman’s successor by late March or early April. It’s made up up students, trustees, professors, staff members and a grad student.
