The search committee for the next President of Florida International University last week recommended the person who has already been leading the institution.
Kenneth Jessell, FIU’s former chief financial officer, was the only remaining candidate as the others vying for the university’s top job dropped out of contention.
Jessell had become FIU’s interim leader when longtime FIU President Mark Rosenberg abruptly resigned last January as allegations of his misconduct surfaced.
Per the state’s new legislation, all those who applied for the job will remain under wraps. The other candidates conditioned their continued candidacy on being announced as the job’s sole finalist.
