SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Three finalists have been chosen in the search for a new leader of Dixie State University.

President Stephen Nadauld, who oversaw the college’s transformation into a university, is retiring.

Last year, the school elected to keep its name despite its association with the Southern Confederacy.

On Wednesday, the finalists are set to meet with faculty, staff and student representatives.

They are: Reid Larkin Neilson, leader of the Mormon church’s history department; Don Vapener, dean of the Davis College of Business at Florida’s Jacksonville University; and Richard “Biff” Williams, provost and vice president for academic affairs at Indiana State University.

On Thursday, the Board of Regents will interview the finalists in a closed session.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1mpDw8a) the board could announce a decision as early as Thursday afternoon.
