Checking into a potential administrative change at UALR, I learned that Provost Zulma Torro, who is executive vice chancellor, is one of three finalists for president of Central Connecticut State University. The Connecticut Board of Regents is expected to make a decision on that choice Thursday, a UALR spokesman said.

The campus is in New Britain.

Torro was dean of the college of engineering at Wichita State before coming to UALR in 2013. As provost, Torro oversees some 500 faculty members and 12,000 students at UALR as the campus' No. 2 executive.

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
