BOSTON (AP) - The search for a new chancellor for the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth has been narrowed to three finalists.

The search committee on Wednesday announced that Robert Johnson, president of Becker College in Worcester, Massachusetts; James Lentini, senior vice president for academic affairs and provost at Oakland University in Michigan; and Philip Way, provost and vice president for academic and student affairs at Slippery Rock University, in Pennsylvania, are in the running.

Marty Meehan, president of the five-campus UMass system, will recommend one to the Board of Trustees.

The finalists were selected after an executive recruitment firm contacted 165 potential candidates and then interviewed 40 of them. The 16-member search committee interviewed 12.

The university is looking to replace Divina Grossman, who stepped down in December 2015.
