Presidential Candidates to Visit West Liberty for Interviews

West Liberty University’s presidential search committee plans on-campus interviews with the finalists later this month.

West Liberty spokeswoman Maureen Zambito tells The Intelligencer and Wheeling News-Register that three to five finalists will be given an opportunity to introduce themselves to the campus community.

The finalists haven’t been identified.

The search committee will make its recommendation to the university’s board of governors. The board is expected to name a new president in mid-October.

Former president Robin Capehart resigned in March amid allegations of ethics violations. Capehart agreed in June to pay a $5,000 fine and $5,000 in costs to settle an ethics complaint alleging he asked a university employee to work for his film company.
