4 finalists named for Northeastern Illinois presidency

Posted: Updated:

CHICAGO (AP) - Northeastern Illinois University has named four finalists for president, a post that has been vacant since fall 2016.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports the four finalists are Morgan State University Vice President Gloria Gibson; Portland State University vice provost Sukhwant Jhaj, State University of New York vice chancellor Carlos Median and Tokyo's Soka University deputy vice president Maria Guajardo.

Richard Helldobler has served as Northeastern Illinois' interim president since Sharon Hahs' departure in 2016, after a decade in the post.

University spokesman Mike Hines says no hiring deadline has been set for the new president. He adds it hasn't been determined whether there will be additional interviews to further narrow the finalists.

Northeastern Illinois enrolls about 9,000 students and occupies 67 acres in Chicago's North Park neighborhood.
