LITTLE ROCK — Four candidates for chancellor of the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff have been invited to participate in campus visits during the next few weeks, the UA system announced said Monday.
The candidates are:
—Laurence B. Alexander, associate dean of the graduate school and director of the office of minority programs at the University of Florida.
—Everette J. Freeman, president of Albany State University.
—Kim Luckes, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Norfolk State University.
—Robert Mock, vice president for student affairs at the University of Kentucky.
The candidates were selected with the help of an advisory search committee chaired by Robert McGehee, UAPB alumnus and dean of the graduate school at the University of Arkansas for Medical Services. An executive committee search firm assisted the committee.
Luckes will visit the campus Jan. 22 and Jan. 23., Mock on Jan. 24 and 25, Alexander on Jan. 29 and 30, and Freeman on Feb. 5 and 6.
"The high quality of these candidates is a testament to the work of our committee and to the attractiveness of the position as chancellor of this fine university," said UA System President Donald R. Bobbitt.
Lawrence A. Davis Jr., who served as UAPB chancellor for 21 years, announced his retirement in May 2012. Former state Rep. Calvin Johnson, a former UAPB education dean, was named interim chancellor.
