In an email on Friday, Interim SIU President J. Kevin Dorsey said the Board of Trustees will schedule a special meeting on Nov. 9 to identify an external firm in search of permanent system president.

“The board may also consider the appointment of an interim chancellor at that time,” Dorsey said. “Otherwise, I anticipate that an appointment of an interim chancellor will be made at the board’s December meeting in Carbondale.”

Dorsey said the appointment of a permanent chancellor will take longer, and it would be difficult to attract a chancellor without a permanent president in place.

“I have been advising those I’ve met with that the earliest we might have a permanent president on board is fall 2019, and permanent chancellor is 2020,” Dorsey said.
