Some notes on the candidates via regent Clyde Allen —
- They show gender and racial diversity.
- They’re all academics with strong admin skills
- They’re all external
- They’re at both public and private institutions
- Some or all have Big 10 experience
- Some are U of M alums
- All have degrees in sciences or liberal arts
Also, two won’t be discussed today. Trying to see ramifications of that
From Patricia Simmons, regent: “We went after” candidates, didn’t just look for those seeking jobs.
