LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - University of Louisville trustees have decided on a presidential search process that won’t identify the finalists before the next campus leader is chosen.

Board of Trustees Chairman David Grissom said in a letter to the campus community on Friday that the trustees decided to protect the confidentiality of candidates during the search.

Grissom told reporters that the university is trying to attract applicants who already have important jobs. He says such officials are unlikely to risk their careers by “becoming a public figure during an interviewing process.”

The decision means only trustees will meet the finalists before the next president is chosen.

The university is searching for a successor to former President James Ramsey, who was ousted last year. Interim President Greg Postel says he’s interested in the permanent position.
