Ohio Newspaper Association | Kent State University has not released information on applicants for president
From The Plain Dealer Kent State University’s search for a new president is well underway but it has not released information on who has applied for the job, according to the Daily Kent Stater student newspaper. It submitted a public records request to the university’s general counsel, but all documents related to the search for the person to replace President Lester Lefton are at the offices of the university’s search firm Storbeck/Pimentel & Associates in Media, Pa., Kent State spokesman Eric Mansfield told the paper. “The process is still in the recruitment phase,” Mansfield said. “This includes giving the search firm adequate time to process any applications submitted as part of advertisements for the position.” Mansfield added when Kent State has the applications, the university will respond to public records requests. Search committee chair Richard Marsh has declined all media interviews. Marsh has not indicated in past interviews whether the search applicants would be made public at any time. Continue Reading>>
