JONESBORO, AR - With completion of a position announcement and placement of advertising, the search process for a new chancellor at Arkansas State University's Jonesboro campus is now well underway, according to Dr. Glen Jones, chair of the Chancellor Search Advisory Committee.

The position announcement and institutional profile have been posted to the Web site of the search consulting firm that is assisting with identifying candidates, Jones said.  The announcement and other information regarding the search may also be reviewed at http://www.astate.edu./chancellorsearch.

On-line advertisements are also now appearing in several widely-circulated academic publications.

The goal is to have campus interviews of finalists in June, with the Board selecting the new chancellor by July 1.
