The finalists will be on the University of Utah campus on Wednesday, Aug. 4 to meet with groups representing faculty, staff, students, trustees and administration, the Board of Higher Education said in a statement. Each finalist will participate in a public meeting that evening, where attendees from the university community and public can ask questions of each candidate.
The following day, the board will interview the finalists in a closed session and will likely select the president that evening.
