A new president is expected to be named the week of March 11 by the California State University Board of Trustees, which will be meeting in Sacramento that week for a trustees' meeting. The new president will succeed current President Alistair McCrone, who is retiring in June after serving as president since 1974, the longest serving president in the CSU system.
"We have four outstanding candidates, anyone of whom could lead Humboldt State into the next century," said Trustee Debra Farar, chair of the search committee. "They are energetic, have strong university experiences and are ready to face the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead in higher education."
