Penn State Trustees Plan To Vote On New President

Posted: Updated:

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - Penn State trustees are poised to vote on a new president for Pennsylvania's largest university.

Officials have not identified the candidate who's expected to be introduced at Monday's special meeting at the Penn Stater conference center on the outskirts of State College.

On Saturday, Florida State University President Eric Barron - a former professor and dean at Penn State - shocked FSU trustees by publicly talking about leaving the school in an interview with the Tallahassee Democrat.

Penn State trustees have not confirmed whether Barron was under consideration and have been tight-lipped about the 15-month process of recruiting a successor to President Rodney Erickson, who plans to retire in June.

Barron worked at Penn State for 20 years, including four as dean of its College of Earth and Mineral Sciences.
