The Presidential Search Committee of Temple University announced last week its intention to recommend to the University’s Board of Trustees that Ann Weaver Hart, president of the University of New Hampshire, become the ninth president of Temple University.
Hart visited campus Tuesday to meet trustees, students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends. The Search Committee is expected to make its formal recommendation to the board this afternoon.
Since Jan. 19, the Search Committee has evaluated the qualifications of more than 100 nominees, reduced the list to 35 active candidates for more intensive review, and interviewed eight.
After further deliberations and interviews, Dr. Hart emerged as the strongest candidate and as the unanimous choice of the committee.
