TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - On Monday Indiana State University announced the two candidates in the Presidential search.
The two finalists are Deborah Curtis, provost and chief learning officer at the University of Central Missouri, and Michael Licari, who has served as provost and vice president for academic affairs at Indiana State since July 2015.
The search committee pooled roughly 70 candidates that was narrowed down to the two. Licari is already working at ISU as Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs.
He says he is humbled and honored by the opportunity.
"I love this institution,” Licari explained. “The mission and the vision of it are incredibly important for the state and the region and the country. It was really a no brainer for me to put my name in the hat."
Both candidates will have interviews on campus in the coming weeks. For more information on those interviews, click here.
