UNCW committee impressed by chancellor applications


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- The search for a new chancellor at UNCW continues.

The search committee held a conference call this morning. They discussed a timeline of how soon to interview candidates as well as interview questions.

During the call, the search committee discussed narrowing down the more than 70 chancellor candidates.

Committee chair Wendy Murphy said there are about 15 to 20 candidates that exceed expectations.

"We've got sitting chancellors, provosts, deans, women. We've got minorities. We're very excited about the candidate pool," Murphy said.

Murphy said the search committee will meet again March 9 and plans to start the interview process at the end of March.
