Choice narrows between WSU presidential candidates


FAIRBORN — Chancellor Dennis Shields, one of the three finalists for Wright State University’s presidential position, has withdrawn as a candidate.

Wright State wrote in a campus-wide email that “he thanked us for the consideration we gave him in his candidacy and praised Wright State as one of Ohio’s premier academic institutions.”

The choice remains between Chancellor Deborah Ford of the University of Wisconsin-Parkside and Cheryl Schrader, chancellor of Missouri University of Science and Technology.
