The Board of Trustees will name MSU’s interim president at a special meeting at noon on Oct. 31. The meeting will be held in room 401 of the Hannah Administration Building and live-streamed for the public.

President Samuel L. Stanley Jr. resigned with a 90-day notice on Oct. 13 in a video sent to the MSU community. In the announcement, Stanley attributed his resignation to a loss of confidence in the Board of Trustees.

The board announced the search for interim president will begin immediately following Stanley’s video. Stanley said he intends to cooperate with the board during the search at the Oct. 18 university council meeting.

Several faculty and student leaders endorsed Provost Teresa Woodruff for interim president in a statement sent to the board on Oct. 26.
