Cal Poly president candidates expected to visit campus next week

Three candidates applying for the president position at Cal Poly are tentatively scheduled to visit the campus on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of next week.

The names of the candidates and information about them are expected to be announced this Friday.

The Cal Poly and local community will have the opportunity to meet and hear from the candidates.

A search firm, Storbeck/Pimentel and Associates, was hired to assist in the hiring of the new president, said Cal State University spokeswoman Claudia Keith.

The amount budgeted for the headhunter firm was “not to exceed $87,500,” Keith said.

A schedule of events for the candidates is listed on the Cal Poly website at http://www.calpolynews.calpoly.edu/news_releases/2010/May/candidates.html.
