Just letting you know I’m in the thick of the University of Minnesota Board of Regents meeting — the one in which the U is expected to announce the finalists in the search for a new president.
I’m tweeting bits and pieces, and will both tweet and post the names of the finalists here.
The names could come in the next hour or so, depending on how quickly the regents get through the agenda. They’re about halfway there — Item 7 out 15, I believe.
