AUBURN, Ala. (AP) – University trustees are set to vote on a new president of Auburn University, and some people say the selection process should be more transparent.
The trustees plan a special meeting for Monday to name a new president.
The Opelika-Auburn News reports that no candidates have been announced in the search to replace Auburn President Jay Gogue.
That means there’s been no chance for any candidates to meet with the community.
English professor James Goldstein it would have been helpful to bring three finalists to campus for public forums so people have an opportunity to express their preferences. He said the selection process for deans involves giving presentations on campus and meeting with different groups.
Gogue, a native of Waycross, Georgia and an Auburn graduate, plans to retire this summer.
