The search for the next president of Slippery Rock University is nearly complete as two candidates will move on to final interviews.
Chance Glenn, provost and vice president for academic affairs at the University of Houston-Victoria, and Karen Riley, provost at Regis University were recommended by the presidential search committee and were recently advanced by a vote of the SRU Council of Trustees.
Both candidates, along with two other finalists visited the SRU campus a couple weeks ago to meet with campus and community groups.
The next step in this process is that each finalist will interview with the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education Board of Governors. That group will then select SRU’s next president.
Current SRU President Bill Behre will retire at the end of June 2023 after fulfilling his five year contract.
