In case you haven’t heard, Peter J. Fos has been selected as the University of New Orleans’ next leader– the institution’s first president. Read more here: http://news.uno.edu/UNOintheNews/articleType/ArticleView/articleId/169/Fos-Selected-UNO-President
First president because previously under the LSU system, campus level leaders were Chancellors and the system level leader was the President. Now that UNO has officially been transferred to the University of Louisiana system, the campus level leader will be called a President. (This is what I was used to having come from the State University of New York previously).
I am a little surprised with the selection, after the on-campus interviews I had Fos and Wartell as the top two, but was banking on Wartell (as you can tell by this previous post). However, I think this new chapter in UNO’s life as an institution looks promising, so I will support the new campus leader as the institution moves forward.
Here’s hoping that Dr. Fos is up to the challenge.
