WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — UNCW Chancellor Gary Miller still won’t talk to anyone in Wilmington about his search for a new job, but folks in Wisconsin will get some time with him today.
Miller is scheduled for a public forum this morning at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, where he is the fifth and last finalist to interview for the school’s chancellor position. It’s the second of two days of interviews for Miller in Green Bay.
Meanwhile, the Buffalo News reports SUNY Buffalo State is set to narrow its list of finalists for the school’s presidency, which currently includes Miller. The newspaper says Buffalo State’s College Council scheduled a meeting for this afternoon to recommend three candidates to State University of New York Chancellor Nancy Zimpher. She will then recommend one person to the SUNY Board of Trustees, and the new president could be appointed as soon as the board’s June meeting in Buffalo.
Miller has spoken publicly about his job search only during a media session and forum at Youngstown State earlier this month. The school eventually hired former football coach Jim Tressel as its president.
When Miller’s search became public last month, a UNCW spokeswoman had said the chancellor did not want to talk about it to keep from being a distraction ahead of last weekend’s graduation. So far, though, Miller still has not granted any local interviews to help explain to the taxpayers who pay his more than $280,000 annual salary.
