LOUISVILLE – The University of Louisville’s Board Of Trustees will not be disclosing many details about their search for a new president.

During the first meeting of the UofL trustees’ special litigation committee on Friday, Board Chair David Grissom handed out a letter giving details about their presidential search.

“After careful consideration, and with the input of national experts in higher education, the Board has decided to conduct the search in such a way as to protect the confidentiality of all candidates,” read the open letter to the UofL Community. “This will enable us to develop the strongest possible pool from which to find our next leader.”

Bill Funk, a consultant with executive search firm William Funk & Associates, told trustees via teleconference that UofL presidential candidates will start being interviewed in January 2018, with a new president being selected in the spring.
