Trustee Chairman: YSU President choice good possibility today

Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - YSU Trustee Chairman, Dr. Sudershan K. Garg tells 21 News that there is a good possibility that the Board will agree on a choice for Youngstown State University President when they meet in emergency session at 7:30 this morning.

However, it's possible that they may not make that decision public until the board's next meeting Monday evening to allow time to make an offer to the candidate.

YSU Trustees no longer face competition for one of the most talked about finalists.

The University of Akron Trustees voted on Thursday to hire University of Toledo Provost and Executive Vice President Dr. Scott L. Scarborough as the new university president.

That means that YSU Trustees no longer have Akron competing for former Ohio State and Youngstown State University football coach Jim Tressel who had been one of the finalists at Akron.  Tressel is among the three remaining applicants for YSU President.

One of those YSU candidates, Chancellor at the University of North Carolina, Wilmington, Gary Miller, is also in the running for administrative positions at two other institutions of higher learning.

Miller is one of five finalists for Chancellor at the University if Wisconsin at Green Bay according to the school's website. Miller is expected to make a campus visit and take part in a public forum on Friday, May 16. He is also one of the three remaining candidates for the position of President at Buffalo State University in New York.

Miller, Tressel and fellow YSU President finalist, Mary Cullinan, President and Professor of English at Southern Oregon University, were on the YSU campus earlier this week for interviews and meetings with students, faculty and trustees.

Some controversy preceded Cullinan's interview at YSU when it was revealed that she had been the subject of no confidence vote by the Faculty Senate at Southern Oregon. Cullinan survived the vote, saying it came at a time when the university was involved in labor contract negotiations.

Three unions representing faculty, police, professional and administrative employees on the YSU campus have endorsed Tressel for the YSU post.
