BU presidential nominee to be revealed today

Nov. 4, 2005

The Baylor Board of Regents' 11-member presidential search committee will announce its recommendation for the Baylor presidency at 3 p.m. today in a news conference at the Baylor Law Library.

Interim President William D. Underwood has filled the position since June 1, when now-Chancellor Robert B. Sloan Jr. officially stepped down as Baylor's top administrator.

On Sept. 9, Underwood asked the search committee not to consider him for the presidency, saying the controversy that surrounded his candidacy would impair his work.
