UMass Presidency Down To 3 Candidates

A search committee charged with coming up with finalists for the job of president of the University of Massachusetts has whittled their list down to three names.

They include Robert Caret, president of Towson University in suburban Baltimore, Philip Clay, chancellor of Massachusetts Institute of Technology since 2001, and Charles Bantz, chancellor of Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis and executive vice president of Indiana University.

The search committee will forward their recommendations to the UMass Board of Trustees, which is expected to interview all three candidates on Thursday before taking a final vote.

Jack Wilson is stepping down on June 30 as president after nearly eight years of leading the $2.8 billion university with five campuses and about 66,000 students.
