On-campus interviews have been scheduled for the three finalists this week. Each candidate will take part in campus-wide question-and-answer meetings with faculty, students, staff and administrators.

Barrott will meet with the search committee from 10:15-11:30 a.m., Devier will interview from 1-2:15 p.m., and Wise will meet with the committee from 2:30-3:45 p.m. The committee will convene at 9:30 a.m. in the Clayton Performing Arts Center (CPAC) to preview the day’s schedule.
