MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Interim University of Wisconsin System President Richard Telfer has appointed search committee to help find the next UW-Stout chancellor.
System officials say Telfer has appointed 21 people, including 11 UW-Stout faculty and two students, to the committee.
The panel will conduct a national search and will recommend five finalists to the system president and Board of Regents selection committee.
That committee will forward one name to the full Board of Regents for a hiring decision.
The university is looking for someone to replace Chancellor Charles W. Sorenson, who announced last month he plans to retire in August.
The regents last week appointed UW-Extension and UW Colleges Chancellor Ray Cross as the new system president.
Telfer is serving as president until Cross takes over in mid-February.
