UConn Trustees to Name Next President

STORRS, Conn. (AP) _ Trustees at the University of Connecticut are scheduled to select the school’s next president.
University officials say a field of 10 semifinalists was narrowed down last week to three finalists. The university’s Board of Trustees has called a special meeting Monday afternoon to take public comments and vote on a final choice.

Interim President Philip Austin has been leading UConn since June 11 and will stay on until the new president starts his or her tenure.

That person will succeed Michael Hogan, who left to become president of the University of Illinois.
