The email stated that “Most of you are aware that I have been involved in a search as a candidate for the presidency of Millikin University. I had the privilege of meeting yesterday with their Board of Trustees as part of the interview process.
Last evening when I returned home, I asked the search consultant to withdraw my name from consideration. I notified the Board of Regents of this decision simultaneously. I am not involved in any other searches and plan to be at ESU for several more years.”
