LITTLE ROCK - The Board of Trustees of the University of Arkansas will host public forums Tuesday in Little Rock and Pine Bluff about the search for a new president of the University of Arkansas System.

Board of Trustees Chairman Dr. Carl Johnson will host the forums to give the university community a chance to suggest candidates and provide input on the qualities they’d like to have in the new president. Other UA Trustees will also attend the public forums.

“We want to hear from the constituents of the University of Arkansas System about what type of person they would like to have as our new president,” Johnson said. “This is a very important search for the future of our university and the state of Arkansas. I hope that people will turn out and give us their thoughts on this process.”

The board of trustees is seeking a replacement for current UA System President B. Alan Sugg, who plans to retire once the search is complete.
