BROOKINGS, S.D. (AP) - The Board of Regents has named four finalists for the presidency of South Dakota State University.

Current President David Chicoine (SHEEK’-wihn) is set to leave the post around July at the latest. He has been president since 2007. He announced in December that he’s stepping down to teach in the university’s economics department.

The finalists to replace him are SDSU college dean Barry Dunn, Auburn University vice president John Mason Jr., University of Arkansas vice provost James Rankin and University of Arkansas at Little Rock executive vice chancellor and provost Zulma Toro.

The finalists will be on the Brookings campus Tuesday through Thursday for meetings with constituents and regents.
