Members of the Utah State Board of Regents on Thursday are privately interviewing finalists hoping to succeed William Sederberg as commissioner of higher education.
The governor-appointed panel, which oversees higher education policy in Utah, is expected to convene in public at 2:30 p.m. to announce who will guide the state's eight-campus system of public colleges and universities. Under a recently enacted law, the appointment is subject to the approval of the Utah Senate.
Regents launched a nationwide search in January for a new commissioner shortly after concluding their search for a new president for the University of Utah. Regents also have a nationwide presidential search for Weber State University underway.
