Behind closed doors, the presidential search committee met for more than one hour via teleconference. Curators did not comment to the media. UM Spokesperson Jennifer Hollingshead says there is no timeline for the selection process and could not comment on the selection of the final list of candidates. The board appears to still be finalizing candidates to replace UM system president, Gary Forsee. Forsee resigned in January of 2011 and was replaced by interim president Steve Owens.
