SU System begins chancellor's search for SU-BR

The Southern University System has started the search process for a new chancellor for its Baton Rouge campus.
System President Ronald Mason Jr. appointed a 17-member search committee last week that consists of the university board, faculty and staff, a student, alumni and members of the local community. The committee will be chaired by Murphy F. Bell Jr., chair of the SU System Board of Supervisors' personnel committee, and Monique Guillory-Winfield, the system's vice president for academic and student affairs.
Mason, in a news release, said the system will hire a consulting firm to help with a nationwide search to fill the position. Southern's board voted in February against renewing Chancellor James Llorens' contract, which ends June 30. Llorens has led the campus for three years.
