BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The search for a new president of the University of Louisiana System is underway.

On Wednesday, The Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/1nTW6IC) the Board of Supervisors signed off on a $49,500 contract with R.H. Perry and Associates to conduct a search for the president to replace Sandra Woodley, who resigned late last year.

Former Louisiana Tech President Dan Reneau has been serving as interim president.

The UL System represents almost 90,000 students across nine universities including University of New Orleans, the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, Louisiana Tech and Grambling State University.

The deadline for applicants to apply for the position is April 15.

The firm will recommend applicants to the UL System Board of Supervisors on April 28, and the board is expected to conduct interviews in May.
