Search for new president begins again at Grambling State University after three-month hiatus
June 3, 2010
After a more than three-month pause, the search for Grambling State University's next president will resume this week.
The GSU presidential search committee will meet at Southeastern Louisiana University in Baton Rouge on Thursday with goals of orienting new committee members and revisiting the search timeline.
At its last meeting on Feb. 26, the search committee unanimously agreed to pause the search process in order to give interim President Frank Pogue time to steer the school through four accreditation site visits and the budgeting process.
"The university has persevered through major milestones, and I am confident now is the time to resume the work of the committee," said University of Louisiana System President and search committee chair Randy Moffett in a prepared statement.
"Our intense focus will be to find the next president for Grambling State University as quickly as possible."
University of Louisiana System spokeswoman Jackie Tisdell said Moffett consulted UL System Board of Supervisors Chairman Winfred Sibille before deciding to resume the search.
Pogue was named GSU's interim president in December after former president Horace Judson resigned in October.
