Starting this month and continuing through May, the advisory committee will work with an executive search firm to conduct a national search with the goal of identifying three to four exceptionally-qualified candidates. These candidates will be invited to interview with Chancellor Brian McCall, after which a sole finalist will be named by the chancellor and recommended for confirmation by the TSUS Board of Regents as early as May.

LSCO President Mike Shahan is retiring August 31, 2018, after serving at the college for 24 years.
