Indiana University officials are in talks with a final candidate to replace President Michael McRobbie, who plans to step down in June.
Four members of IU’s Board of Trustees have been authorized to begin negotiating and they expect to name the new president later this month.
"We are encouraged by the talent and expertise among the finalists," said Melanie Walker, trustee and search committee chair, last month, according to a university statement. "As anticipated, IU's reputation as a leading public research institution with world-class faculty, expert staff and exceptional students has attracted outstanding candidates."
McRobbie announced in August that he planned to step down after 14 years as president.
