GALLAUDET UNIVERSITY ANNOUNCES 4 FINALISTS FOR PRESIDENT
Gallaudet University officials named four finalists Wednesday in the search for the next president of the nation's premier college for the deaf and hard of hearing, signaling that the school is near the conclusion of a process that sparked mass protests and arrests last time. In a message posted Wednesday afternoon on the school's Web site, search committee chairman Jim Macfadden wrote that "we had a lot of fun coming to this point, naming the final candidates. Now the excitement, anticipation and thrill begins." / Washington Post

PRESIDENTIAL SEARCH 2009
The Gallaudet University Board of Trustees created the Presidential Search Advisory Committee (PSAC) and charged them with all aspects of a search to identify persons to be considered by the Board of Trustees for the next president of the University. The Board of Trustees and the PSAC have taken steps to guarantee that the search for Gallaudet’s next president is fair and transparent. On September 2, 2009 the PSAC recommended the following four candidates for consideration. Each candidate will visit the campus and meet with various constituent groups. The Board of Trustees will review information submitted by the candidates, information collected by the PSAC, and input from the community and make a final decision. / Gallaudet PSAC

COMMENTARY: HANDICAPPING THE GALLAUDET UNIVERSITY PRESIDENTIAL RACE
I was kind of hoping that Bob Davila could remain president of Gallaudet University forever, but news came out yesterday that four people have been selected as finalists to replace him. It’s interesting that the deaf community has three main colleges — Gallaudet, NTID and CSUN — and the leaders of two of them, Hurwitz and Rosen, want to quit and run the third. / Tom's Deaf Advocacy
