List of applicants for A-State chancellor released

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Arkansas State University released the list of candidates for their new chancellor at the Arkansas State University-Jonesboro campus.

Over 40 candidates from all across the country applied during the past two months.

Officials are hopeful that a new chancellor will be selected by June 1.

System President Dr. Charles Welch and officials are wanting feedback by students, and a search advisory committee will help with the process as well.

Dr. Doug Whitlock is serving as interim chancellor. Whitlock was selected last September after then-Chancellor Tim Hudson resigned after questions arose about the university's study abroad program in an internal audit.
