Students and Faculty have a chance to meet the candidates for the next second of command for the university. The provost position is currently filled by Pamela Challey. Last week, the Board of Trustees picked their top four candidates to fill the soon to be empty position.

From Monday through Thursday each candidate will have a chance to meet with officials from the university and answer questions students and faculty may have.

According to the itinerary, the best time for faculty to ask questions will be during the Faculty Forum from 1:50 p.m. to 1 p.m. in the John A. Delaney Student Union Ballrooms. The best time for students to ask questions will be from 1:30 to p.m. to 2 p.m. in the Thomas G. Carpenter Library, Room 1300.

There will be an open forum for all faculty, staff, students and the public to ask questions from 3:05 p.m. to 3:50 p.m. This will take place in the SU Ballrooms.

On Monday, Simon Rhodes, a previous Dean of Science at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, will visit the campus.

On Tuesday, Abbey Zink, a previous Dean of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences at Sam Houstan State University, will visit.

On Wednesday, Beth Ingram, a previous Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs at North Dakota State University, will visit the campus.

Finally on Thursday, Russell Ivy, the current Senior Associate Provost for Academic Affairs at Florida Atlantic University, will visit.

The final decision will come on Friday during a meeting with the search committee.
