Regents' ad hoc WNCC Presidential Search Committee both
recommend Dr. James Randolph as the next WNCC President.

gents offer Dr. Randolph $100,000 annual salary, $6000

the Board who took the time to meet with the candidates,
and thanked Mr. Klaich for his Chairing the Committee and
the Committee members for their efforts in completing this
most important assignment.
Mr. Klaich stated that he was very proud of the way each
member of the Committee conducted themselves during the
open search process. Upon questioning, Mr. Klaich indicated
that each member of the Institutional Advisory Committee had
voting rights. He explained that both the Institutional
Advisory Committee and the Regents' Committee worked col-
lectively throughout the process and voted as a single
body, until the final meeting. At that time the Institu-
tional Advisory Committee made its recommendation to the
Regents' ad hoc Committee, who then made its own recommenda-
tion which has been forwarded to the full Board of Regents
at this time.

Chairman and he made it clear that each member of the Com-
mittee had a voice in the process. Mr. Klaich addressed
all questions that were asked during the search process.

volved in this search process. The Board of Regents has
conducted 5 searches this year and it has required much
dedication and long hours.
