GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — The University of North Dakota is holding public forums this month for three candidates who want to be the school's new provost.
The provost is UND's top academic officer, and is considered the No. 2 administrator at the university. Incumbent Paul LeBel is leaving the job in June.
The three finalists will each give a 20-minute presentation on higher education's future. There will be a question-and-answer session and a campus reception afterward.
The forums will be held in the UND Memorial Union's lecture bowl.
On Monday, Anthony Vizzini of Western Michigan University will give his presentation. Christa Slaton of New Mexico State is on Wednesday, and Michelle Larson of Utah State University is scheduled for next Monday, Oct. 15.
The public forums will be streamed over the Internet.
