Candidates for Chancellor advance to semifinals

Wednesday, April 16, 2008

The University of Massachusetts Chancellor Search Committee - in charge of finding a replacement after former Chancellor John Lombardi moved to Louisiana State University after the end of the last academic year - has selected four finalists for the position.

Here's the breakdown of the Chancellor Search Semifinalists:

Martin Hall: deputy vice chancellor of the University of Cape Town

Robert C. Holub: provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs at the Knoxville campus of the University of Tennessee

Harris Pastides: vice president for research and health sciences at the University of South Carolina and executive director of the University of South Carolina Research Foundation

Satish K. Tripathi: provost and executive vice president for academic affairs at the State University of New York at Buffalo.

The Chancellor Search Committee, consisting of 25 members and including representatives from the graduate and undergraduate student bodies, has spent much of the last year weeding through applicants and candidates for the position now held by Interim Chancellor Thomas Cole.

"We were truly pleased to see candidates of the highest caliber step forward and enter this selection process. The quality of the candidate field is a testament to the way UMass Amherst is viewed across the country and throughout academia," said Jennifer Braceras, a 1989 graduate of UMass Amherst currently on the University Board of Trustees. "Because this field was so strong, the committee was able to designate outstanding finalists who are able to inspire and are ready to lead."
