Faculty leaders at Norfolk State University want a greater role in a presidential search that is gearing up, The Virginian-Pilot reported. A faculty member is slated to serve on an "input" committee that will develop traits that are needed in the next leader, but faculty members are not expected on the actual search committee. Board leaders say that they want a completely confidential process, without constituent groups serving on the committee, but faculty leaders say that they can in fact maintain confidentiality and deserve to play a role on the search committee.
