A new president at Kansas State University is expected to be named Thursday, after the Kansas Board of Regents spent more than 10 hours Wednesday in executive session, which included interviews with candidates.

The board adjourned without publicly commenting on a decision. They’ve planned a 10 a.m. meeting Thursday in Forum Hall where an approval vote will take place. A spokesperson for the Regents couldn’t comment on how many candidates took part in the interview process. Names have been kept confidential.

The next president will be the university’s 15th, succeeding Gen. Richard Myers, who is retiring at the end of December after five years.

A reception is planned following the vote.
