CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - University of Wyoming trustees say they will consult the public over the next two and a half weeks as they determine how to handle the search for a new president.

They plan to survey the campus and general public to find out what kind of person they want to see replace current President Dick McGinity, the Casper Star-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1Jv5XNI ).

McGinity announced recently that he plans to resign in June 2016.

Five UW trustees will gather community input on whether to hire a search consultant, what qualifications the next president should have, how the applications should be reviewed, who should review them and what time frame the search should have.

Trustees will hold two forums about the search on May 4: A 4 p.m. gathering for on-campus input and a 6:30 p.m. discussion for the general public.

The five trustees will report its recommendations to the board during a mid-May meeting, the trustees announced Thursday.

McGinity was hired as president after serving as interim vice president for academic affairs and teaching in the business school.
