Marshall's Search for New President Continues

Marshall University

Marshall University’s presidential search committee will continue looking for candidates following an initial round of interviews.

Marshall Board of Governors chairman Michael G. Sellards says the committee interviewed six candidates off campus. While the candidates are qualified, Sellards says the committee decided it’s not yet prepared to invite them for on-campus interviews.

Instead, Sellards said Monday in a news release that the committee will continue searching to identify any other candidates who might not have been in the original pool.

Gary White will continue serving as interim president until a new president is named.

White was appointed on Dec. 29, 2014, following the death of President Stephen Kopp. The 63-year-old Kopp died on Dec. 17, 2014.
