YSU Hosts Candidates

YSU

The three finalists vying to be Youngstown State University’s next president will be available to be interviewed by students.

YSU said in a release on Tuesday they’ve scheduled the three finalists to appear at four different events throughout their on-campus days.

Each will participate in an open forum with faculty, academic chairs and academic senate, another with students and student governments, another with the university community and a 6:30 p.m. reception with the public.

The three finalists are:

  • Randy Dunn, who holds a doctorate in education and is currently president of Murray State University in Kentucky. He also was the former state superintendent for the Illinois Department of Education.
  • Attorney William Decatur, who is currently executive vice president and CFO at Rhode Island School of Design. He previously served as senior vice president for finance and administration at Ohio University.
  • James Moran III, Ph.D., vice chancellor for academic and student affairs for the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education.
