Search For UMass-Boston Leader 'An Urgent Problem' With No 'Quick Fix' Says Paul Reville

Thursday, May 24, 2018

Earlier this week, the three finalists in the running to lead University of Massachusetts-Boston unexpectedly withdrew their names from consideration.

University President Marty Meehan said the three dropped out of the running after the university's faculty council released a statement saying they believed "none of the final candidates have demonstrated that they are sufficiently qualified to serve as the chancellor." Meehan also said he was "mortified" and apologized to the candidates for the way the situation played out.
