Central Michigan University officials announced the four finalists to fill the vacant Global Campus vice president position on Monday.
Each will meet with search committee members for interviews and public forums later this month, according to a university press release. The search committee is chaired by Pam Gates, dean of the College of Humanities and Social and Behavioral Sciences.
