COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Columbus State University is narrowing down the list of candidates in its search for a new president.

The university held an open forum Wednesday afternoon with the fourth out of five final candidates.

The forum was held with Dr. Carl Stockton, Provost and Senior Vice-President for Academic Affairs at the University of Houston-Clear Lake in Texas.

The forums are meant to give students, staff, and faculty a chance to contribute their voice to the selection process. 

"This is a process of choosing a new president for Columbus State University," said Dr. John Finley, Chair of Presidential Search. "And so we interviewed 10 folks and Dr. Stockton was one of those 10 …and of those 10 folks we chose five to come to campus. Quite frankly it's been an intense two-and-a-half weeks but a very energizing two-and-a-half weeks." 

The fifth and final forum will be held Monday, March 16, at 2 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. and will feature Dr. José-Marie Griffiths, Vice President for Academic Affairs at Bryant University in Smithfield, RI.
