Thu., 4:43 pm: YSU trustees to meet Friday

YOUNGSTOWN – An emergency meeting of the Youngstown State University Board of Trustees will be held 7:30 a.m. Friday in the Trustees Meeting Room on the first floor of Tod Hall. They also will hold a special meeting 6 p.m. Monday.

The Youngstown State University Presidential Search Advisory Committee met Thursday in executive session, but nothing was announced before it adjourned.

The Board of Trustees still have yet to make a decision as to which of the three presidential candidates will be selected to succeed former president Randy Dunn. Former football coach Jim Tressel, who is a favorite for the job among various politicians and constituents, is also a finalist for the same position at the University of Akron.
