Four candidates are under consideration for the position of chancellor of SIU Carbondale. Two of the candidates, William Bradley Colwell and George W. Hynd, participated in campus forums and meetings in April. Two additional candidates were added for consideration at the request of the SIU Board of Trustees.

The two campus visits will take place prior to SIU Board of Trustees interviews with the four finalists later in the week. Details of the meeting are pending and will be announced by public notice on June 12.

Two of the originally named finalists, Drs. Carl Pinkert and Jeff Elwell, withdrew from consideration.
