Tech Board Expected to Name President Finalist

Board of Regents
Special Called Teleconference Meeting
Lubbock, Texas
July 2, 2008

Abbreviated Agenda with Approximate Times

Wednesday, July 2, 2008

2:00 p.m. Call to Order Meeting of the Board.
Location: Board Room, Second Floor, Room 201, Administration Building

2:00 p.m Executive Session
Location: Board Room, Second Floor, Room 201, Administration Building

3:30 p.m. Following Executive Session, convene into Open Session, and Meeting of the Committee of the Whole and the Board
Location: Board Room, Second Floor, Room 201, Administration Building

3:30 p.m. Adjournment



From the full agenda, which was e-mailed, but from which I cannot copy and paste because it has Acrobat security enabled, the purpose of the executive session is:

Personnel matters: Consideration and discussion of candidates for the position of President of Texas Tech University -- Section 551.074

If you do any searching of the selection of university presidents, you will find that the exclusive practice is this naming of a single finalist. Thus, it is the de facto procedure in Texas. I am of the opinion that multiple finalists should be publicly named.

The last time Texas Tech hired a president, both Jon Whitmore (who got the job) and the other finalist, University of Missouri Provost Brady Deaton, participated in public events, including open forums with any faculty members who wanted to attend. I'm thus very disappointed with the process this time around.
