UNM Board of Regents President and Search Committee Chair Rob Doughty praised the work of the presidential search advisory committee, which was charged with recommending an unranked list of at least eight semi-finalists. Pursuant to New Mexico law and Regents Policy, the Board selected five finalists who have been invited to the campus for interviews.

We are extremely pleased to have engaged these five very accomplished finalists who seek to be the next president of UNM,” said Doughty. “The search committee found them to be outstanding candidates with great enthusiasm for UNM and its future. We look forward to their campus visits over the next few weeks.”
