Deadline approaching for Southern University president search

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Southern University is making steps toward naming a new system president this summer.

The university is currently taking applications from hopefuls ahead of the May 6 deadline. After that date, a search committee will look through each application to find a new university president.

After a round of phone interviews, the top three will travel to Southern's campus in early June to meet with leaders and students.

Southern University says that they want a new president in place before the 2015 fall semester begins.
