    That is correct, the search is secret. With the reasoning being, that they believe they can get more qualified candidates if the finalists aren't publicized.

    Pretty much a President of University is just a figure head who really doesn't do to much except travel, make public appearances and attempts to bring money into school. Day to day operations of school handled by Provoist(spelling error) down.

    It's a closed search this time. They submitted a list of finalists to the BoR last week and I guess it didn't take long for the BoR to pick one.

    So the provost drives the car, but the president has to look at the map and GPS and decides where to go? Sounds like it's very important to me, and fund-raising in particular.

    All I know is things haven't been the same since Keel was reassigned.

    well, I think the ones looking at the map and GPS and making the decisions are...................your President needs to enjoy traveling and have a comfortable office.

    Things have been challenging, to put it mildly, since Dr. Keel left for Augusta. This hire is absolutely critical to the future of the University. We have a new Research Designation, a huge Engineering-Research Space going in, new "satellite" campuses, a winning football team .. There are many things to get excited about in Statesboro, but if Regents makes a bad hire at the top ... .... .... .... USG can't sabotage GS just to pacify UGA wants and needs. There is too much on the line in this part of the state and if things aren't done well, it reflects on STATE leadership, not just Regents ..

    I am hopeful.
