Ball State to start discussing search for new president

MUNCIE, Ind. (AP): A closed-door meeting will be held at Ball State University in an effort to ward off a vote of no confidence in the board of trustees before the search for a new president begins.

The (Muncie) Star Press reports that board chairman Rick Hall and board member Hollis Hughes will meet with more than a dozen faculty, professional staff and students Monday morning to talk about their concerns following the departure of former university president Paul Ferguson. They’ll also talk about how the next president will be selected.

The nine-member board of trustees will meet publicly later in the day to discuss the search.

Acting President Terry King recently convinced the faculty council to speak with Hall before it voted on a resolution declaring a lack of confidence in the board.
