Murray State President wants university to be seen as "jewel in the crown" of Kentucky higher education
10/02/2012 04:57 PM
Last week, the Murray State News — the student paper — reported that the university’s president could be leaving.
President Randy Dunn is one of two finalists for the top spot at Missouri State University in Springfield. That’s a slightly larger school than Murray with more than 20,000 students.
Dunn will be interviewing there next week.
Earlier this fall, the Murray State board of regents took no action on extending Dunn’s contract, which is set to expire in 2014.
Around that time, Dunn spoke with senior reporter Don Weber about his tenure in Murray and some of the bright spots amid dark economic times for Kentucky’s western-most public university.
(Clarification: Wording in the article has been updated to make it clear that the Murray State board of regents decided not to take action on the question of extending Dunn’s contract.)
