The Arkansas State University-Mountain Home Chancellor Search Advisory Committee and ASU System President Dr. Charles L. Welch today announced that three finalist candidates have accepted invitations to visit the campus and formally interview for the position of chancellor.
If picked, the finalist would replace Dr. Robin Meyers, ASUMH’s current chancellor. Meyers is set to retire on July 31.
The three finalists are:
- Dr. Kendra Ericson, president of St. Luke’s College in Sioux City, Iowa
- Dr. Tamara Daniel, provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs at ASU-Mountain Home
- Dr. Bentley Wallace, president of South Arkansas College in El Dorado
The invitations to formally interview on campus come after recent meetings Welch conducted with the Chancellor Search Advisory Committee. The advisory committee, consisting of 12 members representing faculty, staff, students, and community representatives, reviewed 47 applications for the position.
“We’re very pleased with the pool of quality applicants, and the three finalists are outstanding higher education administrators with impressive backgrounds who would each bring unique experiences to ASU-Mountain Home,” Welch said. “We look forward to interviews and constituency visits on campus during the next couple of weeks, and we will welcome feedback.”
Each finalist will meet with the advisory committee, faculty, staff, students, and community members during interview sessions on June 5 with Ericson, on June 6 with Daniel and on June 7 with Wallace. Individuals attending the interview sessions will have an opportunity to submit feedback regarding each candidate to the Chancellor Search Advisory Committee. Following the final interview, the advisory committee will meet to discuss the candidates and provide feedback to Welch.
Welch has indicated a desire to name a new chancellor by July 1, 2023.
