FAIRBANKS - The finalists for University of Alaska president are to tour the state's campuses on March 1-3.
The UA Board of Regents has chosen nine semifinalists for the post. Their names have not been released. Regent Cynthia Henry is leading the presidential search and says she expects three or four finalists will be chosen after interviews in Fairbanks on Feb. 27-28. Those finalists, whose names will be made public, will then tour UA's campuses in Fairbanks, Anchorage and Juneau.
The university system is looking for a successor to President Mark Hamilton, who announced his resignation last summer.
