Two WSU Tri-Cities chancellor candidates to have final interviews

Herald staff writerMarch 7, 2013 

Two of the chancellor candidates for Washington State University Tri-Cities will take part in final interviews in Pullman Friday.

Karla Hughes and Keith Moo-Young will meet with WSU President Elson S. Floyd and other university officials during the visit. Both candidates made public visits to the Richland campus last month.

Floyd will make his recommendation for a hire to the WSU Board of Regents sometime following his meetings with the candidates. University and search officials have said a final decision could come this spring.

Hughes is currently provost at Morehead State University in Kentucky. Moo-Young is dean of engineering at California State University-Los Angeles.

A third candidate, Ronald Brown, also visited the Richland campus in February. He was recently offered the presidency of the University of North Texas at Dallas, though it's unknown if he has accepted the position.
