The state College Board set no timetable to renew the search for a new president at Mississippi State University. The 12-member board called off the search in July when they couldn't agree on a list of top candidates. The board had intended to start over this fall and had hoped to have a new president in place for the new school year that is about to begin.
Higher Education Commissioner Tom Layzell said today that a new search will be conducted. He said no timetable has been set for the new search. Layzell says the board will meet with the M-S-U Campus Advisory Committee at a later date. He says an announcement will be made when a schedule is worked out.
The board was on its annual retreat Wednesday on the Gulf Coast. The Starkville-based university is currently being led by interim President Charles Lee, who replaced Mack Portera in January. Portera left MSU to become chancellor of the University of Alabama.
