First round of interviews start in search for UW System president

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The first round of interviews will begin Thursday for those hoping to become the next president of the University of Wisconsin System.  

A search and screen committee will speak with applicants through video conferences.  

The UW's David Giroux did not know how many would be interviewed, as the university looks for a replacement for outgoing president Kevin Reilly. The search panel will choose up to five finalists.

Another selection committee will then pick the nominee, who will need approval from the UW Board of Regents.

Board president Michael Falbo has said he expects to release the finalists' names December 23rd. Final interviews are set for early next month.  

Giroux said the candidates have asked that their names not be made public -- but once the finalists are picked, state law requires those names to be released.
